in Basketball Shootout 



Basketball enthusiastscan take a shot at winning one million dollars in the first annual One Million Dollar 
Kentucky Shootout, a unique new fundraising program benefiting the National Kidney Foundation of 
Kentucky, Kentucky high schools, and the Kentucky High School Athletic Association. The event is being 
sponsored by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kentucky, the Kentucky Bankers Association (through 
community bank members), and Kentucky Kingdom Amusement Park. 

The Shootout will culminate at the championship game of the 1993 Kentucky State High School Boys 
Basketball Tournament at Rupp Arena in Lexington. One lucky contestant will take a single shot from the 
mid-court line. If the shot goes in, he or she will win One Million Dollars. "This event could become one of 
the most successful fund-raisers for charity in Kentucky," said Nick Gardner, Chairman of the National 
Kidney Foundation of Kentucky. "We would love to see someone make the half-court shot and win one 
million dollars." 

Kentucky Kingdom Amusement Park will introduce the nine month program on July 1 , 1 992 by operating 
a Shooting Booth at which guests who attend the park can qualify to win. For a $1 .00 donation, contestants 
shoot three free throws. If they hit two out of three, their name will be entered into a drawing. Portable 
basketball goals will also be operated at the Kentucky State Fair August 20-30. 

During the 1992-93 basketball season each of the 280 high school in Kentucky, from Paducah to 
Pikeville, will be given the opportunity to use the Shootout as an exciting fund-raiser at home basketball 
games and /or other events. Local fans can support their school and take a shot at winning. "The Shootout 
provides high schools throughout Kentucky with a unique fund-raiser and an exciting addition to their 
program," Gardner said. 

Eventually, eighteen regional winners, including one from Kentucky Kingdom, will be selected in random 
drawings to participate in a Shootout competition at the Sweet 16 in Lexington. It will come down to one 
person attempting one shot from the mid-court line. If the shot goes in, he or she will receive fifty thousand 
dollars each year for twenty years.

fvliscellaneous items included a proposal by Steve Williams 
to increase the number of volleyball regions from six to seven, 
with an eventual expansion to eight. This recommendation 
was based on the premise that more schools from Central 
Kentucky would be adding volleyball in the near future. The 
proposal was very well done and will be kept on file when 
additional schools are added and re-alignment is approved. 

Ron Kordes recommended that the number of players 
allowed to dress for tournament play be increased from 
twelve players to fifteen players. He added that the expense 
allowance at the State Tournament would remain the same, 
with twelve players plus one coach receiving reimbursement. 
This recommendation will be presented at the 1992 July 
Board of Control IVIeeting. 

Other Items included a proposal to increase the number of 
matches schools are allowed to play during the regular 
season Because the recommendation refers to the limitation 
of seasons and would be a by-law change, the committee 
members will work on a proposal to be submitted to the 1993 
Delegate Assembly regarding the increase in matches. 

A sub-committee was formed to work on a plan to increase 
the number of people who vote for the All -Tournament Team. 
It was felt that a few extra people, possibly media 
representatives etc., might be a good addition to the coaches 
who vote The participating coaches would still be the 
primary voting group The sub-committee includes Stan 
Steidel. Ron Kordes and Katie Wesseling. 

There being no further business the meeting was 
adjourned

State Golf Committee Meeting 1992 




The State Golf Committee met on Tuesday, May 1 9, 
1 992, at the Kentucky High School Athletic Association 
Office in Lexington. The meeting was called to order by 
Brigid DeVries, Assistant Commissioner, at 1:30 p.m. 
Attending the meeting were Cathy Gullett, Ernie 
Denham, Bill Frost, Lou Brown, Marty Donlon, Drew 
Conliffe, Danny Spillman, Dewayne Wilson, Judy 
Muehleman, Fred Mariani, Jeff Littrell and Larry 
Boucher. Guests included Louis DeLuca. 

Commissioner Wise spoke briefly on By-Law 38. an 
interpretation on prizes and awards can be accepted 
by high school players will be mailed to the schools at 
a later date. 

Ken Tippett presented information on the K.H.S.A.A. 
Court of Support. 

The first item for discussion was a Kentucky Golf 
Association report presented by Mr. Louis DeLuca, a 
representative of the Golf Association. The K.G.A. 
plans to present a proposal to the K.H.S.A.A., 
suggesting ways they can be more involved in high 
school golf, and the State Golf Tournament. It was 
suggested that a one or two page handout on the golf 
rules be developed which would be helpful to high 
school coaches if mailed sometime in the spring. 
There is also a new golf video on the market which 
could be used at a workshop or clinic for the high 
school coaches. Marty Donlon suggested that rules 
clinics could be held anytime, but might be more 
successful if held in conjunction with high school 
tournaments. Mr. Donlon and Lou Brown will try to 
furnish the Kentucky Golf Association with the various 
tournament dates. Other committee members are also 
checking their calendars for dates and sites. 

The next item for discussion was the Regional Golf 
Tournament sites and managers. The Regional 



Tournaments are set for October 5-7, 1992. Some of 
the regional sites were set, with golf committee 
members helping to secure those that are not 
assigned. The regional information and entry forms 
were reviewed and changes were made for 1992 golf 
season. It was decided that when more than one 
person wanted to manage a tournament, a rotation 
plan be put into place. 

The boys and girls State Tournament sites were 
discussed Drew Conliffe and Ernie Denham are 
checking with both Lincoln Trail and the Elizabeth- 
town Country Club to see if they are available for the 
1992 Boys and Girls Tournament respectively. 
Arlington Country Club in Richmond is also interested 
in hosting the Boys Tournament in 1993. The state sites 
will be set at a later date. 

The regional golf alignment was reviewed. After a 
lengthy discussion on this topic it was decided more 
study was necessary. Any alignment change would be 
effective for the 1993 school year. Committee 
members were given maps and were asked to develop 
and submit a re-alignment plan prior to the next 
committee meeting. 

The committee discussed the possibility of selecting 
an All-State Team m golf. Ernie Denham stressed the 
importance of an All-State Team, and the value of the 
recognition the golfers receive if selected. Several 
ideas on the selection process were reviewed. Ms. 
DeVries formed a sub-committee to discuss the All- 
State selection criteria. Committee members included 
Chairman DrewConlitte, Lou Brown, Jeff Littrell, Marty 
Donlon. Danny Spillman, and Larry Boucher. 

There being no further business the meeting was 
adjourned.

from Bryan Station High School and the University of Ken- 
tucky. He was a writer, editor 
and producer for Cawood 
Ledford Productions before ac- 
cepting the position as SID in 
September. He wrote copy for 
the legendary "Voice of the Wild- 
cats" for both radio and televi- 
sion and he also was an assistant 
editorand columnlstforCawood

per covering UK sports. He also

specials forthe UK Network, as well as several Thoroughbred 
horse specials.

in the state of Kentucky since 1 984 and recently began working 
college football games in the Mid-South Conference, 

He is married to the former Cassandra Compton of 
Georgetown. 

Game Stats Needed 

Football game statistics are sorely needed to pi'oduce 
an accurate statistics report for the state's media. All athletics 
directors were sent yellow reporting forms before the season 
so that coaches could fill out and return the stats after every 
game. The reports need to be at the KHSAA offices by 
Thursday of the following week. 

Forthelastfull week ofthe September, only 80 of the 
206 schools responded, 39 percent While some may not have 
any players who meetthe minimum requirements, team stats 
are always helpful. The KHSAA encourages all schools to fill 
out a sheet each week. Also, don't hesitate to speed up the 
reporting by faxing the stat form to the KHSAA offices.

School Message: Speak Up For Programs 



By Dick Stickle 

A headline in a local newspa- 
per reads, "School board decides to 
drop activity program." A board mem- 
ber says that frills must be cut to 
balance the budget. Many areas of the 
country have witnessed similar action 
being taken. 

As football, cross-country, 
marching bands and other fall activities 
begin in most schools, I struggle to 
imagine what a school year would be 
like without an activity program - from 
the perspective of the student, teacher/ 
coach or parent. I suggest the result 
would be a long and trouble-filled year 
for all those involved. 

A member of Congress sug- 
gested to me the other day that people 
involved with high school activity pro- 
grams should be aware of the possibility 
of program elimination in these days of 
tight school budgets. 

I would guess that all school 
personnel and state activity/athletic as- 
sociation personnel, as well as the Na- 
tional Federation leadership, are con- 
cerned regarding all activity programs. 



I believe that concern even extends to 
the occurrence of reduced turnouts in 
some activities. 

My additional concern is the 
attitude of this member of Congress - 
a parentofa high school-aged daughter 
- who seemed not to be alaimed that 
programs are being cut. 

Thomas Boswell, who wrote 
an article in The Washington Post titled, 
"Cutting Athletics: Save Now, Pay 
Later," stated: "America has never 
needed corny, old-fashioned youth 
sports more than it does at this mo- 
ment." 

The truth IS, activities can help 
pre vent students from dropping out of 
school, substance use, promiscuous 
behavior brought on by alcohol and 
other drug use, below-level academic 
performance. gangs and some violence. 
Unfortunately, we have a number of 
people in society who do not under- 
stand the potential of activities. 

However, activities without 
the proper leadership will not provide 
the desired results. Any time an activity 
program is conducted without good 
leadership the negatives will probably 



outweigh the positive benefits. 

Your state association needs 
your help by making sure your activity 
program Is managed by a good leader. 
I also encourage you to conduct a 
preseason meeting before the start of 
each activity In your school. 

We need to speak up more 
than ever about what Is right about 
school activity programs. The preser- 
vation of school activities is, ultimately, 
everyone's responsibility. 

These activity programs can 
help curb a number of Ills facing our 
schools and young people - if we have 
good programs. Activities are not 
unnecessary frills In schools. You and I 
must speak up for activities and tell 
people the facts. The activity program 
in your school may depend on It.

8.5.2F(d) and 10,3 3D(c), safety 

Officials Manual - Page 41 and 65, II-A6 change linesman to line judge 
SITUATION #1 : (a) The referee erroneously signals the clock to run 
following an incomplete pass; or (b) the clock operator erroneously runs 
the clock during a try, or (c) the umpire erroneously signals the clock to 
startwhen the ball is kicked on a free kick-, or (d) the clock malfunctions 
dropping 1 minute RULING: In all situations, whether it is misapplica- 
tion of the rules or other error, anytime an obvious error in the timing of 
the game is involved, it can be corrected until the 2nd live ball, unless 
the period has officially ended (3-1-6) 

SITUATION #2 : Following the ready-for-play signal all Team A interior 
linemen are in a 3-point stance, but the snapper does not have a hand 
on the ball (a) Guard A1 rises and shifts to a new position, or (b) B1 
crosses the neutral zone and contacts A1 . or (c) B1 breaks the plane 
of the neutral zone but quickly gets back to B's side of the neutral zone, 
or (d) guard A1 hunches his shoulders in a quick movement which 
simulates snap action. RULING: False start in (a) and (d) En- 
croachment in (b) In (c) there is no foul as the snapper does not have 
a hand on the ball (7-1-1, 2,6) 

SITUATION #3:81 intercepts on his own 3-yard line and his momen- 
tum takes him into Team B's end zone 81 attempts to advance, but is 
tackled in the end zone by A1 While 81 is running in the end zone: (a) 
A1 holds 82 at B's 4; or (b) B2 clips A2 in B's end zone: or (c) 82 holds 
A2 at B's 5-yard line RULING: In all cases, the spot of the catch at 8's 
3 IS the end of the run for purposes of penalty enforcement In (a) and 
(c) the penalty is enforced from B's 3-yard line In (b) it is a safety since 
the foul by B2 occurred in the end zone (8-5-2d; 1 0-3-3c) 
SITUATION #4: Kl's punt is blocked on K's 5-yard line and the ball is 
slowly rolling near the goal line R 1 attempts to recover and just barely 
touches the ball The ball then rolls into the end zone where K2 falls on 
it. RULING: The covering official will have tojudge whether or not a new 
force resulted from R1 's touch The official must decide whether the 
original force was such that the ball could have gone into the end zone 
regardless of the muff If the official has doubt, he will rule that the force 
was supplied by the kick, thus resulting in a safety (8-5-2b) 
SITUATION #5: The referee has charged a 1 5-yard unsportsmanlike 
foul to the coach of Team A for allowing A1 to participate with a rib pad 
which IS not covered by a jersey Since the penalty has been assessed, 
A1 requests to remain in the game RULING: A1 may not stay in the 
game and may not return until he gets the rib pad properly covered A 
player may not "buy" his way into the game with a penalty if he is wearing 
illegal equipment or IS not wearing required equipment (1-5-3g, 9-8- 1h) 
SITUATION #6: Quarterback A1 takes the snap and hands the ball 
forward to A2 The handing is done (a) behind; or (b) in or (c) beyond 
the neutral zone. RULING: Legal in (a) and (b), but a foul in (c) (7-3- 
3) COrvilVIENT: The position of Al's hand(s) onthe ball determines 
whether it is behind, in, or beyond the neutral zone The ball may be 
partially beyond the neutral zone, but if the hand(s) on the ball does not 
go beyond the zone, the forward handing is legal 
SITUATION #7: Team A substitutes one or two players for each down 
The substitutes enter the team huddle before a like number of replaced 
players leave and go directly to their team box However, in a crucial 3rd 
down situation with the ball dead at the inbounds mark near their team 
box, the player does not leave the field, but standsjust inside the sideline 
while facing the sideline When the ball is snapped, the player is made 
aware of it by team box personnel and he then turns and sprints 
downfield to catch a touchdown pass RULING: This is not only illegal. 
It IS a good example of an unethical technique used by the coach This 
illegal participation foul occurred at the snap If the penalty is accepted, 
it will be enforced from the previous spot (9-6-4c) 
SITUATION #8: Following a play midway through the last period, the 
line judge reports to the referee that the coach of Team 8 feels 15 
seconds were permitted to run off the clock after the previous play which 
was an incomplete pass The referee discusses the situation with the 
timer, but cannot determine whether an error has been made RULING: 
No correction can be made unless the referee can positively determine 



an obvious timing error was made. (3-1-6) 

SITUATION #9: Runner A1 catches a pass with 5 seconds remaining

Cecil, Grogan Roll 
To State GolfTitles 

By Brooks Downing 

North Hardin's Tanya Cecil and Murray's Adam 
Grogan captured the state's top golf titles last month, Cecil 
winning the 29th Girls' State Individual Golf Championship at 
Elizabethtown Country Club while Grogan took home the 
59th Boys' State Individual Golf Champbnship at Lincoln Trail 
Country Club in Vine Grove. 

Cecil shot a blistering 2-under-par 70 during the 
opening round to propel her to a two-day total of 1 52 to win 
the girls' title by seven strokes over Madisonville's Emily 
Thomas. Cecil's great play propelled her North Hardin squad 
of Kellie Brown (174), Amanda Cecil (192) and Whitney 
Crutcher (196) to the team title with a combined 714, 
outdistancing runner-up Casey County by 28 strokes. 

The boys' team title was won by St Xavier with a two- 
day total of 653, which outpaced Ballard by 12 strokes. The 
Tigers were led byjason Black, who fxit together a 76-8 1 ~ 157 
to finish third. Chris Mueller (165) Keith Hoard (165) and 
Justin Wimsatt ( 1 66) rounded out the Tigers' scoring. 

Grogan shot a 78 the first day and found himself tied 
with eight other golfers, three shots back of leader Josh 
Crowley of North Hardin. But as the beautiful fall weather 
turned wet, cold and gusty the second day, Grogan heated up. 
As the crowd followed the top-four leaders around the course 
for the final round, Grogan was two groups ahead quietly 
cutting into the lead. 

The junior, dressed in a sweater and his Texas 
Longhom baseball cap for the final round, was bullish the final 
day, completing the front nine at even par, then stampeding to 
a I -over-par 73 to surpass Somerset's Ryan Tucker by three 
strokes. Tucker shot 5-over-par 77s both days to fxjt himself 
in |X)sition for the championship title. But Grogan's excellent 
putting and driving was too much to overcome. 

Henry Clay's team was disqualified after the first 
round when sophomore Brad Arnold turned in an incorrect 
scorecard. Two of his scores were reported as fours when he 
actually shot fives. A player v^o turns in an incorrect scorecard 
where the scores reported are better than the actual score, 
both he and his team are disqualified. The Blue Devils were 36

Strokes behind St. Xavier after the first 
round. 

St Xavier's team victory was 
the I I th state boys' golf title for the 
Tigers. 

After the first round of the 
girls' tournament, the race appeared to 
be on. Cecil held afive-stroke lead over 
Henry Clay sophomore Sharon Park 
and a seven-stroke lead over Emily 
Thomas of Madisonville-North Hopkins. 

But day two conditions 
changed. It was still warm, upper 70s, 
but the wind was very strong, as some 
putts actually rolled back away from 
holes due to the force of the gusts. 
Scores were all high, including Cecil's, 
who shot a I0-over-par82, 12 strokes 
off her opening-round total. 

Park pulled within three 
strokes after the first three holes as 
Cecil bogeyed each one, but that was 
the biggest challenge the North Hardin 
senior would face. Cecil dropped a 35- 
foot putt on 1 8 to finish seven strokes 
ahead of Thomas. Park struggled through 
the final nine and finished fifth with a 
164.

1992-93 SWIMMING COMMITTEE MINUTES 

The Swimming Committee met Sept 29, 1992 at the K.H.S.A.A. 
Office in Lexington. Assistant Commissioner Brigid L DeVries called the 
meeting to order at 1 :30 p.m. Committee members present induded Tim 
Cahill, Matt Rydson, Phil Wilder, Jerry Mohr, Martin OToole, Jack Thomp- 
son, Dale Baggett, David Webb, Karen Vanover, Paul Klingensmith, Paul 
Short, Wynn Paul, and Steve Bush. 

Wynn Paul gave a brief presentation on upcoming swimming events 
scheduled at the Lancaster Aquatic Center, University of Kentucky. Wynn 
extended an invitation to all committee members to attend any and all events 
at the Lancaster Center. 

The first item on the agenda was the selection of the regional sites. 
The managers and sites are as follows: Central Kentucky Region -Tim Cahill, 
Model High School, Richmond; Jefferson County Region - Martin OToole, 
Crescent Hill, Louisville: Northern Kentucky Regbn - Dave Webb, Scott 
High School, Covington; Western Kentucky Region - Matt Rydson, Bowling 
Green High School, Bowling Green. The committee discussed the regional 
informatron sheets and made some minor changes. The Regional entry 
deadline date is Jan. 27, 1 993. Regional meets are scheduled on Feb. 5-6, 
1993. 

The next item for discussion was the State Swim Meet and Site. The 
1 992-93 meet is scheduled on Feb. 1 9 & 20, 1 993 in the Lancaster Aquatic 
Center at the University of Kentucky. Paul Short made the motion to keep 
the format of the 1 993 state meet the same as last year's meet The motion 
passed. The warmup period for Thursday evening will be structured so that 
each region has one hour of warmup. The preliminary heats will consist of 
three heats of eight swimmers in all swimming events. The finals will consist 
of six swimmers in the consolation heat and six swimmers in the champi- 
onship heat The seeding meetingfor the state meet is scheduled for Sunday, 
Feb. 7, 1993. 

A discussion was held on the possibility of increasing the number of 
qualifiers to the State Meet from 24 to 32. It was felt that the number of 
qualifiers in the state meet was adequate at this time. Paul Klingensmith 
made a recommendation that a two-meet requirement be implemented in 
swimmingfor participation in the regional swimming meets, effective for the 
1993-94 school year. The recommendation passed 13-1 and will be 
submitted to the Board of Control for approval. Tim Cahill made a motion 
which would allow eight swimmers to qualify for the finals and consolation 
finals, change the scoring to include 1 6 places and leave the state qualifiers 
at 24 competitors in each event effective for the 1 993-94 State Meet This 
recommendation will be submitted to the Board of Control for their 
consideration pending a scoring analysis of this year's state meet 

The next item for discussbn was in reference to diving judges at the 
state meet Ms. DeVries shared a letter from some of the coaches from the 
western part of the state with some concerns and recommendations for this 
year's state meet Both the Diving referee and Assistant Diving referee have 
been mailed copies of this letter and will relay the coaches concerns to the 
judges who are selected to judge the state meet Each regional manager will 
be responsible for provkding at least one diving judge for the state meet The 
additional judges will be selected at large, as has been done in the past so 
a seven-judge panel can be used. 

Due to budget cutbacks, each school will be responsible for paying 
their expenses to the state meet effective this year. 

'The State Meet Combined Awards have been underwritten by a 
corporate sponsor in the past Tim Cahill will coordinate the sponsorship 
again this year. Should a sponsor be unavailable, these awards will be

Four Model Swimmers Model Students 



By Jerry Wallace 



RICHMOND, Ky. — At the 
beginning of every swimming season at 
Model Laboratot7 School, Coach Tim 
Cahill reminds his swimmers that 
they're "first and foremost students." 

Despite the rigorous athletic 
demands of the sport, the coach's 
message has not fallen on deaf ears. Of 
the nine Kentucky swimmers named 
Academic Ail-Americans recently. 
Model Lab could lay claim to four, a 
remarkable achievementfor any school, 
much less one with just over 200 
students in its top four grades.

terscholastic Swimming Coaches of 
Americafor 1 99 1 -92 were Kerry Fraas, 
Ashley Wolfe, Sarah Whitcopf and 
John Dewey. Seniors last season., they 
have gone their separate ways, but not 
before leavingan athletic and academic 
legacy that makes for one proud coach. 
"That's really an incredible accom- 
plishment," Cahill said. "It's a compli- 
ment to all the teachers these young 
people had in high school. They, too, 
should feel very proud that these stu- 
dents are in the nation's elite." 

Of the eligible 50,000 high 
school seniors who participate in swim- 
ming, diving and water polo, about 800 
were named Academic All-Americans. 
To earn the honor, a student-athlete 
must letter in one of the sports for at 
least two years, and carry at least a 
3.75 grade point average (on a 4.5 
scale) in their core courses over four 
years. 

Fraas, Wolfe and Whitcopf, 
the only three senior girls on last 
year's Model Lab squad, were among 
only four Kentucky female swimmers 
honored, while Dewey was one of five 
males. 

The four Model honorees 
have done more than just letter in 
their sports. Each has excelled in 
interscholastic competition. 

Fraas, daughter of Robert and 



Elizabeth Fraas, v/as a three-time Ail- 
American in the 50 freestyle and this 
past year earned the honor in the 1 00 
freestyle, events in which she has also 
won state titles. Now attending the 
University of South Carolina on a swim- 
ming scholarship, Fraas performed at 
the junior Nationals level for three 
years and was 23rd in the nation in the 
50 freestyle. She holds three individual 
school records and has been a mem- 
ber of two record-setting relays. Also, 
she is the co-holder of the 50 freestyle 
state record and a state record-holder 
in the 100 freestyle. Last year, Fraas 
was voted the state's Outstanding Fe- 
male Competitor by the Kentucky 
Coaches Association. 

Whitcopf, daughter of Den- 
nis and Lynn Whitcopf, was a consis- 
tent finalist in distance events in re- 
gional competition, as well as a state 
qualifier. 

Wolfe, daughter of Ron and 
Ruth Wolfe, was a finalist fou r years I n 
regional competition, competing in 
butterfly, freestyle and individual med- 
ley. 

Dewey, son of Don and Mary 
Ann Dewey, was a finalist in the 500 
freestyle and 200 freestyle at the re- 
gional and state level, and was a standout 
tennis player for Model. 

The senior leadership spurred 
Model's 1991-92 swim team to an- 
other in a long line of successful sea- 
sons. At the regional level, the Patriots 
finished second out of 22 teams. At 
the state level, they finished fourth out 
of 67 teams. 

"In the last 13 years, our 
teams have consistently been in the 




Kerry Fraas 



top five, and only once out of the top 
10," Cahill noted. 

Still, the topper is the aca- 
demic success. 

"We work around exams and 
otheracademic activities," Cahill noted. 
"They can't afford to fall behind. 

"The fun part for us is that 
they do it willingly. They put the same 
type of effort into their studies as they 
do athletic competition. And that's a 
formidable effort in the I 10 percent 
category." 

Other Kentucky high school 
student-athletes named to the Aca- 
demic All-American lists include St. 
Xavier's Chris Carmicle and Blaine 
Hubbuch, Woodford County's John 
Lodmell, Covington Catholic's Joseph 
PI eschel and Paul Blazer's Ginger Castle.

Stidham Named To Coaches Care Honor Roll 

Bellevue's Harold 'Pep' Stidiam was one of 1 52 high school coaches 
named to the Coaches Care Honor Roll for 1992. The veteran coach of 
Bellevue's cross-country and track programs was honored for his dedication 
to the student-athlete. Stidham demonstrated special care and concern for 
student athletes as an outstanding roll model. The winners were selected from 
over 200,000 high school coaches in America. This is the second year this 
award, sponsored by Gatorade, was given.

12 I ATHLETE 



Participation In Prep Sports Growing 



KANSAS CITY — Although 
some high school athletic programs 
are being threatened with cutbacks, 
participation in interscholastic athlet- 
ics nationwide is the highest since 
1 978-79, accordingto the annual sfxjrts 
participation survey conducted by the 
National Federation of State High 
School Associations. 

The National Federation has 
compiled the survey since 1971 based 
on figures from the 5 I state high school 
athletic/activity associations that are 
members of the National Federation. 

The 1991-92 sports partici- 
pation total of 5,370,654 is up 71,983 
from last year and is the highest mark 
since 5,563,9 12 in 1978-79. The total 
is composed of 3,429,853 boys — up 
23,498 from last year and highest since 
1980-81 - and 1,940,801 girls - up 
48,485 from a year ago and second 
highest total ever, topped only by 
2,083,040 in 1977-78. 

These figures come on the 
heels of last month's announcement by 
high school principals in Chicago that 
they intend to drop winter and spring 
sports unless sufficient money is raised 
by November I . 

"We realize that many school 
districts are having hard times finan- 
cially, and we certainly hope that some- 
thing can be done to keep high school 
sports alive in Chicago," said Brice 
Durbin, executive director of the Na- 
tional Federation. "It is obvious that 
despite decreases in high school ath- 
letic budgets, schools are finding new 



and unique ways to fund programs. 
The survey indicates that interest in 
high school athletics continues to rise; 
we must do everything possible to 
ensure that the programs remain in 
place to provide kids the opportunity 
to compete." 

Durbin said it is unfortunate 
that athletics becomes the scapegoat 
in solving budget problems. National 
figures indicate that only one to five 
percent of a school district's budget is 
devoted to athletic programs. 

"Certainly, it would appear 
from the results of our sports partici- 
pation survey that leaders are accept- 
ing the fact that other sources of 
revenue must be sought and are doing 
so successfully," Durbin said. "We 
must continue to obtain funding from 
businesses, corporations, support 
groups and civic clubs. In settings 
where civic leaders are active and 
schools are cooperative, the money is 
raised. When they are not, a financial 
strain exists." 

Participation in high school 
athletic programs hit an all-time high 
of 6,450,482 in 1 977-78, which was 
the height of high enrollments in high 
schools nationwide resulting from the 
"baby boom" generation of the late 
1 950s and early 1 960s. 

With the exception of a slight 
decrease from 1987-88 to 1988-89, 
participation has risen each year since 
the 1 984-85 year. TTie 1 984-85 totals 
stopped a six-year downward spiral in 
which participation dropped five con- 



secutive years. 

Interest in soccer, both for 
boys and girls, continues to grow. An 
increase of 7,702 participants in boys 
soccer moved the sport past wrestling 
to become the fifth-most popular sport 
at the high school level. Boys soccer is 
fifth with 236,082 participants, sur- 
passing wrestling, which lost 765 par- 
ticipants, at 229,908. 

In 1 979, boys soccer had 
1 32,073 participants and ranked eighth 
nationally. In 12 years, participation 
has increased 1 00,000, and soccer has 
moved past tennis, cross country and 
wrestling in popularity. 

The increase in girls soccer 
has been even more dramatic. Girls 
soccer has increased from 23,475 in 
1979 to 135,302 last year and has 
moved from No. 1 2 to No. 6 in popu- 
larity. 

Outdoor track and field 
( 1 6, 1 1 ) and baseball ( 1 4,669) had the 
largest increases in participation among 
boys sports. Although it lost 28,578 
participants, football remains the most 
popular boys sport with 912,845 
participants, followed by basketball 
(5 1 8, 1 27), baseball (433,684), outdoor 
track and field (417,451), soccer 
(236,082), wrestling (229,908), cross 
country (154,119), tennis (145,374), 
golf ( 1 32,847) and swimming (79,998). 

All top 10 girls sports except 
volleyball registered increases in par- 
ticipation, led by soccer ( 1 3,580), ten- 
nis (6,826) and outdoor track and field 
(6,420).

Where's Our Check? 




At a time when every 
high school is feeling the 
crunch of increased costs to 
operate all aspects of its 
sports' programs, one ques- 
tion on the minds of the 
Office Manager coaches and principals is 
"NMien will we receive our 



expense check from the KHSAAfor our participation in the State 
Championship (volleyball, football, soccer, etc)?" 

We offer this explanation of the procedure used before 
the checks can be issued. 

1 ) Folbwing the state event in most sports, the school 
completes a participation form which the coach signs listing the 
number of participants. This form is then verified by the KHSAA 
and exp>enses are calcubted using the albwance set forth in the 
KHSAA Handbook under the respective sport. State champion- 
ships are financed by the Association. However, only those 
sports Scinctioned by the KHSAA that are revenue producing 
sfxjrts receive expense checks (i.e. baseball, basketball, football, 
Softball, soccer and volleyball). 

2) The calculated expenses are then approved by the 
Commissioner and given to the Office Manager for processing. 

3) The check is written within three to five days from the 
date of receipt of these calculated exf>enses and in most cases 
within two weeks of the state event 

In case a school does not receive an expected expense 
check within two to three weeks, the principal shou Id contact the 
KHSAA. Often times the participation forms have not been 
processed properly or submitted promptly. 

Our objective is that all monies due our member schools 
will be mailed promptly. Please let us know if you have any 
questions or comments about the above procedure. 

Note: Many of our schools are still using our old address. 
After Feb. 1, 1993, the post office will no bngerforwardourmail. 
Please make sure you are sending all correspondence to 2280 
Executive Drive, Lexington, KY 40505.

(^ Basketball Rules Interpretations 



PUBLICATION CORRECTION: 

Casebook, Play 5, delete part (a) and 
ruling rebtive to part (a). 
SITUATION#l: (a) Four minutes prior 
to the start of the game; or (b) during a 
time-out in the 2nd quarter of play, the 
Team B coach requests the scorer to 
add a name to the squad list or change a 
squad member's number in the 
scoreboolc When is the penalty in- 
voked for this administrative infraction? 
RULING: The infraction occurs v^en 
the scorer is advised to add to or change 
thescorebook. The foul must be charged 
and enforced when the ball next be- 
comes alive. Once the ball has become 
alive, it is too late to penalize. (lO-l- 
2b,c,d,e Pen) COMMENT. A number 
of administrative infractions, i.e., adding 
a name to the squad list, requiring the 
scorer to change a number, or a player 
to change to the number listed, or 
identical numbers, are to be penalized 
"when discovered." "When discovered" 
actually means when it occurs" in all 
cases other than the identical numbers. 
The scorer must inform the officials and 
the penalty mu st be invoked at that time. 
If the infraction is not penalized then, it 
will be too late if not reported or recog- 
nized before the ball becomes alive. 
SITUATION #2: (a) Al is discovered 
to be wearing a different number than 
recorded in the scorebook; or (b) dur- 
ing a dead ball, the coach informs the 
officials that Al's shirt must be changed 
as it is torn and that the number will be 
different than the number on the torn 
shirt; or (c) Al has changed shirt number 
at haKtime and has not reported this to 
the officials or the scorer. 
RULING: In (a) a technical foul is 
charged to Team A as the scorer must 
change thenumberinthe scorebook. I n 
(b) the change is allowed without pen- 
alty and the scorer will record the new 
number. In (c) it is a flagrant technical 
foul on Al which results in immediate 
disqualification. (3-2-2d,e; IO-l-2q 10- 
3-1) 

SITUATION #3: The five starting 
players for Team B are all wearing num- 
bers v^ich are different than the num- 
bers entered in the scorebook. The 
discovery is made: (a) just before the 
toss on the jump to start the game; or 
(b) following the first dead ball after the 
game has started. In both cases the 



numbers in the scorebook are changed 
to match those worn by the players. 
RULING: In both (a) and (b) Team B is 
penalized with one technical foul. In (a) 
the game begins with Team A's 2 free 
throve and the ball for a division line 
throw-in. (3-2-2d; 1 0-1 -2c Pen) 
SITUATION #4: Al is fouled and 
should be awarded a one-and-one, but 
erroneously Team A is given the ball for 
a throw-in. The error is discovered: (a) 
immediately after Bl scores after inter- 
cepting the throw-in pass; or (b) while 
A2 is holding the ball after catching the 
throw-in pass; or (c) immediately after 
A2 travels following the throw-in. 
RULING: In (a) Al will be given a one- 
and-one opfKjrtunity with no players 
abng the lane. Play will resume with a 
throw-in by A from anywhere atong the 
end line as normal folbwing a goal by B. 
In (b) Al will be awarded a one-and-one 
with players abng the lane and pby will 
continue from the made or missed free 
throws. In (c) following Al's one-and- 
one, with no players abng the lane, play 
resumes with a throw-in by B nearest 
the violation. (2-10) 
SITUATION #5: Bl and B2 commit 
personal fouls against Al at approxi- 
mately the same time. Al is fouled while 
in the act of shooting on a 3-point try 
v/hich is: (a) successful; or (b) unsuc- 
cessful. 

RULING: This is a multiple foul situa- 
tbn. In (a) Al is av/arded 2 free throws. 
In (b) Al is awarded 4 free throws. (10- 
6 Pen 6b) 

SITU ATION#6:AI catches the throw- 
in pass with one foot on the fbor in A's 
frontcourt and the otherfoot not touch- 
ing the floor. The non-pivot foot then 
comes down in A's backcourt. 
RULING: Vblatbn. The throw-in ex- 
ceptbn regarding the division line is not 
in effect, unless both feet of Al are off the 
fk>or when he or she catches the throw- 
in pass. (9-9 Exp) 

SITUATION #7: Al is fouled and is 
awarded 2 free throve. Team B is out 
of time-outs and the coach calls all the 
players to the sideline for instructions 
v/hile Al is preparing to attempt the first 
free throw. Is this situation a technical 
foul for delay, or a vblation on Team B 
if Al misses the free throw? 
RULING: Team B must occupy the 
first two spaces as required since this 



free throw situatbn is not folbv^ng a 
time-out or intermission. A technical 
foul is charged if two B players do not 
innmediately respond to the officiaTs 
requestor instructions before the ball is 
put at Al's disposal. This type of delay is 
a planned technique which is used in 
order to have a conference without 
having to use a time-out ( 1 0- 1 -5b) 
SITUATION #8: Al is fouled by Bl 
while Team A is in the bonus. The 
covering official is at the table reporting 
the foul when Al is charged with a 
technical foul by the official who is ob- 
serving the players. The foul on Al is his 
or her 5th. 

RULING: Because Al has been dis- 
qualified, he or she will not be albwed to 
attempt the one-and-one resultingfrom 
Bl'sfoul. The substituteforAI will shoot 
the free tiirow(s). (4-14; 8-2) 
SITUATION #9: Al is holding the ball 
for the 2nd free throw and has not 
started a throwing motbn when B2 
fouls A2 along the lane. Team A is in the 
bonus. 

RULING: The whistle causes the ball 
to become dead. The lane spaces are 
cleared for Al's free throw attempt, but 
are occupied as required for A2's one- 
and-one. (6-7-7; 8- 1 -2) 
SITUATION #1 0: BIfouls thrower Al 
and the contact is on the: (a) out-of- 
bounds; or (b) inbounds side of the 
throw-in boundary plane. RULING: In 
(a) it is an intentbnal foul and in (b) it is 
a common foul-unless judged to be in- 
tentional or flagrant (9-2- 1 1 Pen 4) 
SITUATION #1! : Al, while in die air, 
secures control of the rebound of his or 
her unsuccessful 3-point try. Al is off 
balance and falls to the floor, but is able 
to hold onto the ball. RULING: A 
traveling vblatbn by Al. (4-38 Ques I) 
SITUATION #12: Bl fouls Al to put 
Team A in the bonus, but the officials 
erroneously give Team A the ball for a 
throw-in. A6 replaces Al. Bl intercepts 
the throw-in pass and quickly scores a 
field goal. Followingthegoal, theofficials 
are advised of the error. RULING: The 
error of not avi^rding Al a merited free 
throw(s) is correctable. Al will be in- 
structed to enter and attempt the one- 
and-one with no players abng the lane. 
Al will then return to the bench and the

(if) Wrestling Rules Intetpretations 




PUBLICATION CORRECTIONS 
Wrestling Rules Book Rule 8-2-6, Pg. 
3 1 - In the last sentence, place a period 
after nosebleed" and delete the remain- 
der of the sentence. 
Casebook and Manual Part X, #4, Pg. 
25 - Delete the entire second sentence 
and the word "not" in the last sentence. 
Part X. Item #5, Pg. 26 - In die last 
sentence, delete the word "not" which 
is the fifth word from the end of the 
sentence. 

SITUATION #1: Is it permissible for 
a contestant to wear gloves while wres- 
tling in high school competition? 
RULING: Gbves would not be consid- 
ered as traditional wrestling equipment 
or uniform. They would not be catego- 
rized as "special equipment" because 
that is primarily for protective reasons. 
They would be considered as somediing 
that would give you an advantage over 
your opponent and, therefore, would 
not meet with the spirit of good sports- 
manship. (3-1-1 1) 

SITUATION #2: School A has a wres- 
tling match with School B on Tuesday 
night and with School C on Wednesday 
night. On Tuesday morning, the coach 
of School A calls the coach of School C 
and indicates to him that he has a dual 
meet that night and, therefore, the dual 
meet on Wednesday night would be 
consecutive days of team competition 
and all contestants would be allowed to 
have a one-pound albv/ance. 
RULING: Inorder to begrantedaone- 
|XHind allov^ance for all contestants, a 
minimum of 48 hours advanced notice is 
required for your opponents. In this 
case we do not have 48 hours therefore 
no allowance. COMMENTS: The 
coach of School C cannot grant a one- 
pound albwance even if he would like 
to. The rules do not allow for the two 
coaches to make agreement upon an 
area that is specifically outlined by rule, 
therefore, the dual meet on Wednesday 
night would be at scratch weight. (4-5-4) 
SITUATION #3: Wrestler A is ahead 
of his opponent by a score of 1 4-4 and 
both wrestlers are on their feet Wres- 
tler A is able to initiate a takedown with 
an upper body move that places Wres- 
tler B on his back when he makes con- 
tact with the mat. The referee com- 
pletes this five-second count and shordy 
thereafter. Wrestler A is too high on his 



opponent and is reversed by Wrestler 
B. The reversal immediately puts Wres- 
tler A on his back and he is pinned. 
Would Wrestler B be declared the 
winner of the match? RULING: The 
match would be won by Wrestler A on 
a technical fall. As soon as Wrestler A 
takes Wrestler B to the mat he is 
awarded two points, which would make 
the score 1 6-4 and, as soon as the five 
second count has been completed and 
Wrestler B reverses Wrestler A, you 
would award a three point near fall to 
Wrestler A, making the score 1 9-4. At 
this time, Wrestler A is ahead by IS 
points and would win the match. (5-2-7) 
SITUATION #4: The 1 30-pound con- 
testant from School A reports to the 
mat to wrestle and the referee notices 
that he has an undergarment that ex- 
tends below the length of his singlet. 
What is the proper procedure for the 
referee to follow in this circumstance? 
RULING: It is die desire of the rules 
committee that situations of this nature 
be taken care of in the bcker room 
prior to competitba If, however, it 
presents itself at mat side, the referee 
needs to folbw this guideline: it is a 
vblatbn of Rule 4-1-1 where it states, 
"While full-length tights are acceptable 
under a one-piece uniform, Bermuda- 
length tights and other accessories that 
extend beyond the inseam of a one- 
piece uniform are not permitted." There- 
fore, in accordance with Rule 8- 1 - 1 , the 
wrestler would have his two-minute 
injury time to prepare himself to be 
ready to wrestle on the mat If this 
correction cannot be made within the 
two-minute injury time the individual 
would be disqualified from competition. 
COMMENTS: The high school wres- 
tling uniform can either be full-length 
tights under a one-piece uniform or you 
may wear just a one-piece uniform. If 
you wear a one-piece uniform, it must 
have a minimum inseam of 4 inches and 
a maximum length of above the knee. 
The school uniform is f]exS>le enough 
that it should be able to satisfy all t/pes 
of tights and undergarments iif the indi- 
vidual wishes to wear them. (4- 1 - 1 & 8- 
l-l) 

SITUATION #5: In a dual meet the 
1 71 -pound match concludes with the 
score tied 5-5. The referee goes to the 
scorer's table to verify this score and, as 



he returns to the center of the mat to 
notify the contestants, one of the indi- 
vkluals is disgusted with the fact that an 
overtime must take place and slams his 
headgear to the mat in disgust The 
referee immediately penalizes this as 
unsportsmanlike conduct Because wres- 
tling has not concluded, this unsports- 
manlike call would be a match point and, 
therefore, the match would be con- 
cluded with the final score 6-5. The 
overtime would not take place (6- 1 -3 & 
7-4-2) 

SITUATION #6: The 140-pound 
match appears to end with the score 5- 
4. At the conclusion of the match, the 
individual that has scored 4 points imme- 
diately expresses himself to the referee 
in an unsportsmanlike manner. The 
referee, at that time, signals 
unsportsmanlike conduct and deducts 
one team point The coach of the 
wresder that scored 4 points, however, 
has gone to the scorer's table and re- 
quest a conference with the referee. 
The purpose of the conference is that 
the coach feels there has been a scoring 
error and the match score should be 5- 
5 instead of 5-4. After the official checks 
the scoring, he concludes that the coach 
is correct and indicates that the match 
ends in a tie. By rule we now automati- 
cally go to overtime, but instead of 
starting the match, the referee indicates 
to the scorer's table that the 
unsportsmanlike conduct call v/ill now 
be changed from a team point to a match 
point and the overtime has concluded 
with the final score of the match 6-5. 
COMMENTS: An unsportsmanlike call 
is a team point if there is no more 
wrestling. This unsportsmanlike call, 
however, occurred when there was 
wrestling left and, therefore, it is amatch 
point 

SITUATION #7: During the third 
perbd, Wrestler A indicates to the 
referee that he is having trouble breath- 
ing and requests a time-out because of 
his illness. During the time-out he takes 
medication from his coach so that he will 
be able to continue wrestling. Is this a 
vblation of the high school wresding 
rules? RULING: A contestant is now 
allowed to take a time-out for an injury 
or an illness. In the above situation, we 
would have a time-out for illness and, 

(Please See Next Page) 



DECEMBER 1992 



lATHLETE 13 



(From Page 12) 

during that time-out, it is permissible for 
the individual to take medicatioa (8-2- 

I) 

SITUATION #8: In dual meet compe- 
tition both coaches have weighed-in two 
contestants for the 145-pound match. 
For that particular match, School A must 
send their v^restler to the mat first 
However, after the 140-pound match, 
the coach of School B sends one of his 
contestants to the center of the mat 
prior to the coach of School A sending 
his wrestler out As soon as the coach 
from School A sends his wresder to the 
mat, the coach of School B withdraws his 
first v/restler and replaces him with 
another contestant Is this permissible? 
RULING: Even though, in this situa- 
tion, the wrestler from School A was 
required to go to the mat first if the 
individual from School B goes to the mat 
first he cannot be recalled. Once either 
contestant is placed on the mat he may 
not be withdravm without forfeiting the 
match. Once you send a wrestler to the 
mat he must remain there and you no 
longer have a choice. (6-2-2) 
SITUATION #9: Wrestler A has a 
legal headlock on Wresder B and, as 
they go to the mat, Wrestler B is able to 
work his arm out so that the headlock 
only has the arm encircled between the 
elbow and the hand. What is the proper 
procedure for the referee to follow in 
this situation? RULING: This is a situ- 
ation where a legsJ hold is turned into an 
illegal hold by the defensive wrestler. 
The referee shall cause the hold to be 
released as soon as it becomes illegal but 
he shall not penalize the offensive wres- 
tler. The match does not need to be 
stopped unless the referee finds it nec- 
essary to do so in order to correct the 
Illegal hold. (8-1 -5 & 6) 
SITUATION #10: Two contestants 
accidentally butt heads and, as a result, 
one receives a laceration and the bleed- 
ing from it is difficult to control. How 
much time is allowed for this problem to 
be resolved? RULING: The rules this 
year now state that all bleeding, other 
than a nosebleed, shall be counted as 
injury time. Therefore, this problem 
must be curtailed within a maximum of 
two minutes injury time in order for the 
individual to continue the matcK Oth- 
erwise the match would be defoulted 
and his opponent declared the winner.

(From Page 1 1 ) 



game will continue as normal following a 
goal by Team B. If Team A desires, Al 
may enter and replace a player and 
remain in the game. (2- 1 0- 1 ; 8-2) 
SITUATION #13: Immediately fol- 
lowing a goal by Al, A2 inbounds the ball 
and: (a) A3 scores a goal followed by a 
throw- in by Team B; or (b) it is inter- 
cepted by Bl. In both cases, the ball 
subsequently becomes dead and the 
throw-in by A2 is questioned. 
RULING: In (a) once the throw-in 
begins after A3's goal, it is too late to 
cancel the score or penalize Team A. In 
(b) the game will resume from the point 
ot interruption. No action will be taken 
against Team A in either situation. The 
unauthorized throw-in procedure is lim- 
ited to discovery before the next throw- 
in begins, foltowing a score by Team A, 
or before Team B gains control of the 
ball. (10-1-8) 

SITUATION # 14: Al is making a des- 
ignated spot throw-in from out-of- 
bounds, near the division line. Al lobs 
the throw-in pass toward A2 who is 
nearthe opposite sideline Blleapsfrom 
B's frontcourt and intercepts the pass. 
Bl returns to the fkxsr with: (a) the first 
foot down in B's frontcourt and the 
other foot then down in backcourt; or 
(b) the first foot dov«i in B's backcourt 
and the other foot then down in 
frontcourt; or (c) both feet in B's 
frontcourt but momentum forces Bl to 
immediately step into backcourt RUL- 
ING: No violation in (a) and (b). In (c) 
it is a violation for retumingto t»ckcc>urt 
Once both feet have touched the floor 
in frontcourt any subsequent touching 
in backcourt is a violation. (9-9 Exp) 
SITUATION #15: Al's throw-in pass 
bounces off the floor and is caught by 
A2, v^ile A2 is in the air. A2 has jumped 
from A's frontcourt and lands with both 
feet touching in A's backcourt RUL- 
ING: Legal Whether or not the ball 
touched the floor before A2 controlled 
the throw-in pass has no significance. 
The exception is in effect when the first 
player to secure control of the throw-in 
has both feet off the floor. (9-9 Exp) 
SITUATION # 1 6: Erroneously Team 
A is given a throw-in when Al should 
have a one-and-one free throw. Al 
inbounds the ball and A2 tries for goal. 
The unsuccessful try is rebounded by A3 
and A3 is holding the ball when the error 



is discovered. 

RULING: Al will be given a one-and- 
one free throw with players abng the 
lane. Play will continue as normal from 
the made or missed free throw(s) since 
there had been no change of team pos- 
session following the error and until it 
was discovered. (2-10; 2-l2-3a) 
SITUATION #17: Team A coaches 
and substitutes are all off their seats and 
are standing while yelling encourage- 
ment and support for Al during a free 
throw situation. The infraction is de- 
tected by the covering official. How 
many technical fouls are assessed? 
RULING: One technical foul is charged 
to Team A and also charged to the head 
coach. In a situation where similar 
multiple infractions of this type occur at 
the same time, it is not the intent of the 
rules to p>enalize each individual infrac- 
tion as a separate technical foul. (10-4- 
Ig; 10-5 Pen) 

SITUATION # 1 8: Al has the ball and 
prepares to attempt the first of 2 free 
throws. Bl violates by stepping out of a 
marked lane space and the covering 
official gives the ap>propriate signal. Al 
sees the official's signal and is confused. 
Al tosses the ball to the official. 
RULING: Al has also committed a 
violation. A violation by Al combined 
with Bl's violation results in a double 
violation. Al is entitled to attempt the 
2nd free throw. (9-1-3 Pen 3) 
SITUATION # 1 9: Free thrower Al is 
in the act of shooting v/hen Bl fouls A2 
abng the lane. The contact by Bl forces 
A2 to step into the lane just before Al 
releases the ball in a successful attempt 
RULING: Since the foul caused A2 to 
violate, the violation should be ignored, 
the free throw counted, and the foul on 
Bl enforced. (4-1 1; 6-7 Exp 3) 
SITUATION #20: Folbwingagoal by 
Al, A2 purposely grabs the ball as it 
comes through the basket and inbounds 
it to A3. A3 passes the ball to a team- 
mate and play continues until Bl is called 
for a blocking foul. At this point the 
referee recognizes Team A had an unau- 
thorized throw-in. 

RULING: Charge Team A with a tech- 
nical foul and cancel the common foul 
charged to Bl.-Consumed time is put on 
the clock and play resumes with the 2 
free throv/s and then a throw-in by 
Team B. (10-1-8)

The team alignment for 1993 
was discussed and several schools have 
requested re-alignment on the district 
level for the 1993 soccer season. Mo- 
tion v/as made by Frank Slone, and 
seconded by James Weatheriy that any 
submitted proposals for change in align- 
ment as presented by schools would be 
decided on by the Board of Control. 
Motion carried. This includes any changes 
for boys and girls teams. Mr. Stout 
stated that the eight regions for girls 
soccer would not change unless more 
teams were added. Also, that a referen- 
dum would be sent out to all schools in 
January concerning seasons of play for 
the boys and girls soccer program for 
the 93-94 season. 

It v/as reminded that a referen- 
dum is mailed to all member schools, not 
just soccer playing schools. Discussion 
folbwed expressing concern for voting 
again so soon in regard to the soccer 
season for both boys and girls. Mr. Stout 
stated that if majority support was shown, 
in the form of notarized letters, from 
schools that expressed the desire to 
keep boys soccer in the fall then the 
Board of Control may reconsider the 
referendum that wcxild include the boys 
program. This information would be 
made available to the Board of Control 
at their December meeting by Mr. Stout. 

Beginning in 1 993, Mr. Stout will 
be organizing the clinics which will re- 
quire attendance by all officials and 
coaches. Mr. Stout also stated that he 
will have a coach and an official at each 



of these dinics to address any questions. 
Any recommendations for these indi- 
viduals may be addressed to Mr. Stout at 
theKHSAA Itwas stressed that the rule 
will be adhered to for any coach or 
official that does not attend the sched- 
uled clinic. In addition to the scheduled 
clinics, two (2) regional make-up clinics 
may be scheduled. 
Clinic dates and sites are: 

1 . Madisonville North-Hopkins, 
August 7, 1 1 a.m. CT; Jim Weatheriy, 
will assist. 

2. Elizabethtown High School, 
August 9, 7 p.m. ET; Byron Perkins, will 
assist. 

3. Louisville - Trinity High , Au- 
gust 11,7 p.m. ET; Valdis Bole, will assist. 

4. Lexington - Lexington Catho- 
lic High School, August 12, 7 p.m. ET; 
Bob Pugh, will assist. 

5. Northern - Holmes High 
School, August 16, 7 p.m. ET; John 
Horton, will assist 

6. Eastern-Rowan County High 
School, August 1 7, 7 p.m. ET. 

Mr. Stout will meet with the 
designated officials, coaches and assign- 
ing secretaries prior to the clinic dates 
to discuss procedure and items for the 
clinics. 

Also discussed v/as the need for 
training sessions for officials. With nine 
associations in the state the develop- 
ment of training sessions for officials 
could bring abcxjt some consistency and 
quality of officiating. A sub-committee 
was selected to review this recommen- 
datbn. Mr. Stout recommended that 
the assigning secretaries be included in 
this program since they would be re- 
sponsible for the training within their 
association. Committee members se- 
lected were, Warren Manahan and Bob 
Pugh as co-chairmen, and Byron Perkins. 
The committee will report back at the 
next State Soccer Committee meeting. 

John Horton expressed concern 
about the length of the soccer season 
and made the suggestion of moving the 
season back one week. MR. Stout stated 
that this was a By-Law and can only be 



voted on and decided by the Delegate 
Assembly. District and Regional sites 
are assigned by the Commissioner's 
Office. Some district sites are on a 
rotation basis and some are submitted 
requests to the KHSAA It was stated 
that regional sites should have an ad- 
equate focility for hosting all participat- 
ing teams involved and that if a facility is 
believed to be inadequate, informatnn 
should be directed to Mr. Stout, at least 
one week prior to play. Regional dates 
have been set for 1 993. 

Sectional sites for 1993 were 
discussed. In order to avoid a situation 
where one school would host both 
tournaments, a motion was made by 
Byron Perkins and seconded by John 
Horton that we operate on an odd and 
even basis and the boys sectional host 
for 1993 come from the odd number 
regbn and the girls sectional host come 
from the even number regton for 1993. 
Motion carried. Further discussion of 
this would also be done by the soccer 
coaches association. 

The following includes changes 
relating to the Soccer Plan. A) Correc- 
tion was made that the first game of the 
season shall not take place before the 
fourth Monday in August instead of the 
first Monday in August; B) Re-empha- 
size that a coach cannot coach any 
member of his/her team until that cur- 
rent school year is over; C) Cannot 
make summer participation mandatory 
for players. F) Motion was made byjohn 
Horton and seconded by Rick Oschner 
that on a yellow card, a player is re- 
moved from the remainder of that game. 
A report is not written and a coach may 
sub, but that player may not return to 
that game. Motion carried 10-2. 

Motion was made by J ohn H orton 
and seconded by Nick Brake that a letter 
be sent to all assigning secretaries in 
regard to player conduct and behavk>r. 
To be aware of and sense any "trouble", 
undue "roughness" and any unsports-

Lexington Teams Sweep Soccer Titles 



By Brooks Downing 



VERSAILLES, Ky. -- The 
Lafayette Lady Generals and the Paul 
Dunbar Bulldogs, both Lexington schools, 
combined to sweep the first soccer 
championship double-header on Nov. 
20. 

The championship showcase, 
originally scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 
1 4, had to be postponed when the field 
at Community Park in Woodford 
County became saturated after two days 
of rain. As it turned out, two inches of 
snow also fell that Saturday. 

Lafayette, playing after a near- 
two week layoff, used great defense to 
hold off the Notre Dame Pandas I -0. 
The Lady Generals' Sarah Chrisman 
scored a goal with 30:52 left in the 
second half to give Lafayette the first 
sanctioned state soccer championship in 
Kentucky high school history. 

But as important as Chrisman's 
goal was, goalkeeper Emily Bryan's play 
determined the outcome. Bryan some- 
how survived numerous shots on goal 
late in the contest During one two- 
minute stretch, Bryan, a freshman, cov- 
ered three Notre Dame attacks. 

In the boys' final, it was nearly 
allTom Morgan. Morgan, ajunior, scored 
two goals to lead Dunbar to a 3- 1 state 
championship victory over 
Elizabeth to v^. 

Morgan got the Bulldogs on 
the board before halftime, scoring his 
first goal with 1:35 left in the opening 
period. 

The Panthers' Wade Barnes 
tied the game with 27:44 left when 
Dunbar goalie D.J. Stadnyk fumbled an 
attempt in front of the goal. But that 
would be Stadnyk's only miscue. He held 
Elizabethtown scoreless the rest of the 
v/ay as Morgan and Matt Weddington 
finished the Bulldogs' scoring. 

It's the third straight season a 
Lexington boys' soccer team has won 
the state tide. Dunbar, in just its third 
year of existence, finished theyearat 19- 
6-2. Elizabethtown finished at 20-4. 

Lafayette closed out its season 
with a record of 1 5-2-2. Notre Dame 
had a final mark of 1 9-5-2. 




Dunbar junior Joe Paul Reever kiclcs the ball during championship action. 
The Bulldogs defeated Elizabethtown 3-1 to win the state title. The 
victory marks the third straight year a Lexington team has won the boys' 
championship.

Andrew Brings Out Best In Miami Coach 



CHICAGO (November 13, 
1 992) — Meeting challenges head-on is 
what high school coaches do best. That's 
why head football coach Don Soldinger 
of Southridge High School in Miami 
moved quickly to help his players pick 
up the pieces after Hurricane Andrew 
struck late last summer. In recognition 
of his care and concern for young 
people, Soldinger is being featured this 
month by Coaches Care, the national 
public service program sponsored by 
The Gatorade Company. 

After weathering the hurri- 
cane with his wife Phyllis on August 24, 
coach Soldinger began the 1 5-mile drive 
from his home to Southridge High, 
situated near the area of Miami hardest 
hit by the 164 mile-per-hour winds. 
Soldinger's mission was to learn the 
fate of his 69 football players, who were 
preparing to defend the state football 
co-championship they earned during 
the 1991 season. 

Many of his friends and play- 
ers, including Southridge assistant coach 
Rodney Hunter, were among the thou- 
sands of people left homeless by the 
hurricane. At a time when Soldinger 
expected to have his players on the 
practice field, he began the process first 
of finding them, then assisting the local 
relief effort. He delivered canned food 
and cbthes to people left without power 
or v>^ter, and even opened his home to 
players in need of a shower and a good 
night's rest 

"Everywhere you looked there 
was devastatbn," Soldinger said. "What 
had been a beautiful place became a 
wasteland. I've been through four or 
five hurricanes, but never anything like 
this. 

"All I wanted to do was help 
out in any way I could, and I think any 
coach in my position would have done 
the same thing. The coaching profes- 
sion is about giving." 

"His love and compassion for 
people shines through," said Southridge 
Principal Fred Rodgers. "He's a great 
role model for coaches and students 
alike. He has everyone's respect and 
adoration." 




Coach Don Soldinger (right) talks with team linebacker Coemba Jones, 
while younger brothers clean-up debris left by Hurricane Andrew. 



On the football field, Soldinger 
demands a great deal from his athletes. 
He was asking even more of his players 
in light of what happened. Within 
weeks after many players lost their 
homes, and nearly their lives, he had 
them back on the football field. 

"Kids respond to adversity," 
Soldinger said. "They're very resilient 
And many of our kids didn't have very 
much to begin with, even before the 
hurricane hit So we expected a lot 
from them, and they expected a lot of 
themselves. This school has a tremen- 
dous athletic tradition." 



The Southridge football team 
has had only one losing season since the 
school opened in 1 976. It consistently 
ranks as one of the top teams in south 
Florida. But Soldinger says the lessons 
his players learn this fall will be more 
valuable to them later on in life than any 
championship trophy. 

"Anyone can be a loser," said 
Soldinger. "But you have to be willing 
to fight one more round to be a win- 
ner." 

Soldinger's approach to aca- 
demics is just as tough. He teaches

health and physical education and took 
it upon himself to open a study hall for 
students during the lunch hour. He has 
enlisted the aid of other teachers to 
help instill better studying techniques. 
And he doesn't want kids to just pass 
their classes so they can play. He wants 
them to succeed in school, and learn 
the skills necessary for success in col- 
lege and later in life. Soldinger's players 
have had steadily improving grades and 
SAT scores since he returned to the 
school several years ago. Southridge's 
principal, Fred Rodgers, and athletic 
director Bob Burnside, attribute it to 
Soldinger's efforts. 

"Coaching football involves a 
lot more than going out and knocking 
heads," explained Rodney Hunter, who 



played for Soldinger in 1983-84. "It's 
about caring for kids, and giving them 
something they can hold onto all of 
their lives." 

"High school coaches are fre- 
quently recognized for their achieve- 
ments on the playing field," said Patti Jo 
Sinopoli, The Gatorade Company's 
manager of sports communications. 
"Coaches like Don Soldinger contrib- 
ute much more to student athletes, and 
we're proud to pay tribute to him. 
through Coaches Care." 

The Gatorade Company cre- 
ated the Coaches Care program in 
1 990 to bring well-deserved attention 
to high school coaches who go above 
and beyond the call of duty and demon- 
strate a special brand of care and con- 
cern for their athletes. Over the past 
two years, 289 coaches nationwide have 
been named to the Coaches Care 
Honor Roll. Periodically, Gatorade 



selects a high school coach from some- 
where in the U.S. to feature in full-page 
advertisements that appear in several 
coaching and athletic management pub- 
lications. 

High school coaches can be 
nominated for Coaches Care distinc- 
tion by principals, athletic directors, 
teachers, fellow coaches, parents and 
student athletes. Selection criteria and 
a nomination form may be obtained by 
writing: Coaches Care, P.O. Box 1 94, 
Hinsdale, IL 60522-0194. 

Coaches who meet the crite- 
ria outlined on the nomination form are 
permanently placed on Gatorade's 
Coaches Care Honor Roll and receive 
a certificate from Gatorade as well as 
recognition at state and national coaches 
meetings. The Coaches Care Honor 
Roll is published in Scholastic Coach 
magazine in September.

Director 



Basketball Stat 
Reports Trickle in 

What will it take 

to increase each school's 

involvement w^ith statistics 

reporting for basketball? 

Letters and report forms 

v/ere sent to each athletic 

director in the state during 

December with complete 

information as to v^en the 

reports were due each 

week AND, it stated that these reports were mandatory, in 

order to ensure the most accurate compilation of results the 

state has ever seen. 

Yet, after the first week that the reportswere due — the 
beginning of January — showed only a return rate of less than 30 
percent. Not good for a mandatory report due each week. 

This past football season was my first opportunity to 
deal with each school for statistic reports. An average of 75 were 
returned each week out of 208 schools participating. Again, how 
can accurate results be compiled with less half the schcxals 
reporting? 

In basketball, there are over 270 schools participating 
in both boys' and girls' hoops. Yet, only around 80 were returned 
in each sport. 

How can coaches expect us to give the statewide media 
the most accurate information when nearly 200 schools refuse to 
participate? What happens next season when a composite 
basketball schedule book is compiled? Will less than 1/3 of the 
schools be listed? 

Sure, coaches are busy trying to prepare their daily class 
schedule along with all the duties of coaching. Time is limited. But 
statistics keeping can be assigned to a manager, a parent/booster 
or just a cbse friend of the program. Good help is out there. 

So if you haven't sent in a report sheet this season, get 
started today. Records are irrelevant The reports are mandatory! 
Just fill out the report sheet the beginning of each week

TARGET Goal - Drug Free Activities 



During the school year, 
parties and activities without alcohol 
and other drugs should be a priority 
for young people nationwide. 

This is evident from statistics 
in 1990 from the National Highway 
Traffic Safety Administration that 
show of the more than 43 percent of 
all 1 6- to 20-year-olds v^o died as a 
result of motor vehicle crashes, an 
estimated 48.3 percent of the fatalities 
were alcohol-related. 

When young people use 
alcohol or other drugs, clear thinking 
regarding sexual behaviors may fail. 
The May 1992 issue of NEA Today 
reported that the cumubtive number 
of AIDS-diagnosed cases anvDng 13- to 
1 9-year-olds rose from 203 in 1 987 to 
789 in 1991. In 1996, AIDS will 
become the leading cause of death 
among 15- to 24-year-olds, according 
to the article. 

School administrators need 
to play a key role in influencing policy 
development and providing support 
for student leaders. Student leaders 
can help other students set goals to 
resist the influences of alcohol and 
other drugs and reward safe and 



healthy behaviors. Parents must be 
willing to sponsor, chaperon or host 
drug-free social events. Adults should 
evaluate the signals they send young 
people who observe adults' reasons 
for drinking - to celebrate, to be 
sociable or to relax. 

Be creative in planning 
activities. Here are examples: 

'*' Involve students in the 
planning; 

* Explore every conceivable 
angle to put together activities 
which will entice the majority; 

* Establish budgets; 

* Form fund-raising commit- 
tees; 

* Positively publicize the 
event; 

Students respond well to 
settings which albw them to listen to 
music and leisurely enjoy being 
together without fear of having to 
participate in "silly" games or adhere 
to a long list of rules. They must 
understand, however, the edict against 
use of alcohol or other drugs v^ile 
participating in the activity. 

One such successful activity 
held for high school students in 



Manassas, Va., was called a "SOBAR," 
an alcohol-free evening held at a 
popular night spot Creative advertis- 
ing was used and advance tickets were 
sold to verify the numbers and names 
of those planning to attend. Soft 
drinks and finger foods were served. 

A "bck-in" may also be a 
good idea. NMiere lock-ins have been 
successful, doors are open until 1 1 
p.m. - midnight Everyone in atten- 
dance after that time is locked in. 
Chaperons who really want to be 
there and wish to have fun contribute 
greatly to the success of this type of 
venture. 

Bonfires, hay rides and barn 
dances have been successful in Storm 
Lake, Iowa. Also popular is a party 
with a variety of activities including a 
volleyball tournament movies and 
board gjimes. The party is topped off 
with pizza and soft drinks.

News FromTheTennis Committee Minutes 



The State Tennis Committee 
met on Tuesday, Dec. 8, 1 992, at the 
Kentucky High School Athletic 
Association Office in Lexington. 
Assistant Commissioner Brigid L 
DeVries called the meeting to order 
at 1 :30 p.m. Committee members 
present included Cliff Richardson, Rick 
Cotton, Jerry Johns, Terry Johnson, 
David Compton, Joe Kroh, Bob 
Duricko, Mary Robinson, Kathy 
Johnston, and Robert Hardin. 

The first item on the agenda 
was a discussion of a standardized 
format for dual matches. It was 
recommended that a dual match 
consist of three singles and two 
doubles teams, with no players 
competing in both singles and doubles. 
However by mutual consent of the 
participating coaches any number of 
players could play in a dual match. 
This recommendation will be listed in 
the tennis information effective for the 
1993 season. 

The committee discussed 
several concerns oudined in a letter 
from Bob Stewart and the Jefferson 
County Tennis Coaches. A sub- 
committee was formed to study 
splitting boys and girls tennis into fall 
and spring seasons as well as an 
analysis of the number of qualifiers 
who advance to the State Tourna- 
ment Sub-committee members: Cliff 
Richardson, Richard Cotton and Rob 
Hardin will report back to the full 
Tennis Committee with their sugges- 
tions. 

The first item on the agenda 
wzs a discussion of regional tourna- 
ment sites. Suggestions were made by 
committee members with regards to 
the Regional Tournament Managers 
for regional sites not secured at this 
time. The dates of the Regional 
Tournaments are listed on the school 
calendar as the week of May 1 7, 1 993. 
As in the past. May 1 5 & 1 6 may be 
used if necessary. All Regbnal 
Tournaments must be completed by 
May 23, 1993. The Committee 
reviewed the regional information that 
will be mailed to the schools and made 



some revisions. 

The Committee discussed the 
current tie-break procedure for a 
three-way tie used in regional play. 
After a very lengthy analysis, it was 
decided that the regional draw from 
the 1992 Paris Regional Tournament 
be analyzed by committee members 
to see if any change is necessary. 
Kathy Johnston will report to the 
committee on this issue. It was 
decided that in the case of a three- 
v/ay tie for second place, the tie- 
breaking procedure based on percent- 
ages would be applied. This proce- 
dure is the same as the second-place 
procedure now utilized for a two-way 
tie. 

The next item on the Agenda 
was the State Tennis Tournament. 
The dates for the 1 993 Tournament 
are June 3-5, 1 993, and will be held at 
the University of Kentucky in Lexing- 
ton. The committee reviewed the 
state informatbn and made a few 
changes. The official ball for the State 
Tennis Tournament this year is the 
Wilson Tennis Ball. 

The seeding committee for the 
state tournament v/as the next item 
for discussion. It was felt that the 
committee should continue to be 



representative of all areas of the state. 

Joe Kroh gave a brief report on 
the Prince All-American Selections as 
well as the All-State selection process. 
The All-State selections will be made 
once again during the 1 993 State 
Tennis Tournament Coaches will 
receive a nomination form to be 
submitted at the coaches meeting 
prior to the state tournament Bob 
Love will be the Chairman of the 1 993 
All-State Committee. 

The committee reviewed the 
Constitution and By-Laws with 
respect to the Limitation of Seasons. 
It was noted that regular season play 
ends on the Saturday preceding 
regional tournament play. 

The next item on the agenda 
was the development of Tennis 
guidelines for coaches. A sub- 
committee was formed previously to 
devebp the guidelines. A draft vi/as 
presented and given to committee 
members for them to make any 
additions or corrections. Committee 
members will mail these back in to the 
KHSAA Office no later than Jan. 8, 
1 993, so the guidelines can be 
finalized. 

There being no further business 
the meeting v/as adjourned.

of good citizenship and high behavioral standards apply equally to all activity disciplines. In perception 
and practice, good sportsmanship shall be defined as those qualities of behavior which are characterized 
by generosity and genuine concern for others. Further, an awareness is expected of the impact of 
an individual's influence on the behavior of others. Good sportsmanship is viewed by the National 
Federation as a concrete measure of the understanding and commitment to fair play, ethical behavior 
and integrity."

Traditional Powers Win Football Titles 



By Brooks Downing 



LOUISVILLE -- While change 
may have been the basis of Bill Clinton's 
presidential campaign, it was not on the 
platform for the 1992 State Football 
Championships as traditional powers 
Beechwood, Danville, Highlands and St 
Xavier took home the top prizes in each 
class. 

The 34th annual edition of the 
state championships took place at Car- 
dinal Stadium at the Kentucky Fair and 
Exposition Center. 

Beechwood won its second 
straight Class A title by defeating 
Bardstown 21-14. Danville won its sixth 
state title, its fourth over Mayfield. The 
Admirals' latest triumph v^as delivered 
with a 24-point fourth quarter to secure 
a 34-7 victory. Danville has also won 
back-to-back Class AA titles. 

Highlands, which appeared in 
the very first state champbnships in 
1959, tied the state record of 1 1 state 



titles when it defeated Paducah Tilghman 
1 5-6. Trinity has also won 1 1 . 

St Xavier, which lost the Class 
4A title to George Rogers Clark in '9 1 , 
gained redemption this season by squeak- 
ing out a hard-fought 3-0 win over 
Boone County. 

This may have been the most 
thrilling contest of the four. Neither 
team could generate much offense in the 
cool temperatures that were prevalent 
both days. Boone County's Dave Merlo 
mis-fired on a 34-yard field goal attempt 
late in the second quarter. Both teams 
went into the halftime scoreless. 

At the start of the fourth quar- 
ter, Merlo's teammate Aaron Byrd 
knocked wide a 40-yard field goal at- 
tempt But while Boone was 0-2 be- 
tween the uprights, St X had a try with 
8:21 left Tiger kicker Will Fishback 
nailed his only attempt ^ 30-yarder, to 
give the Tigers their first title since 
defeating Boone County 27- 1 4 in 1 986. 

Boone County dominated the 



time of possession 29:47 to 1 8: 1 3, but in 
the end, remained scoreless. 

The Class 3A title game pos- 
sessed the biggest highlight Tilghman's 
star quarterback Billy Jack Haskins, and 
recently named Mr. Football, broke the 
state's career passing record v/hen he 
finished with 1 78 yards on 8-24 passing 
and one TD. He finished his career with 
6,741 yards, breaking the mark set by 
Cby County's Sean Pennington (6,655). 
But Haskins was victimized by three 
interceptbns and the Blue Tornado did 
not score until their final possession as 
Haskins hit George Hamilton for a 6- 
yard reception. 

While Danville waited until the 
fourth quarter to get its offense 
untracked, Beechwood broke a 14-14 
tie with 3:52 left v^en runningbackBrad 
Wulfeck scampered into the endzone 
untouched with 3:52 remaining. Like last 
year, Brandon Berger led the Tigers 
charge on offense, rolling up 1 99 yards 
on 26 carries.

Brick Delay 

The much-anticipated arrival of the three-line and four- 
line bricks ordered by schools, fans and supporters of the KHSAA 
was put on hold recently when the specially designed bricks foiled 
inspection. 

The bricks, specially made due to their size and shape, 
arrived two nrxinths ago. But the bricks were not rigid enough to 
withstand engraving and were returned. Many purchasers have 
visited the Court of Support at the new KHSAA headquarters in 
Lexington and have noticed only two line bricks are in place. 

The manufacturer has assured the KHSAA that the 
bigger bricks are in productioa Once the KHSAA receives the 
order, the bricks will be sent directly to the engravers, who will 
then engrave the bricks and place them in the Court. The KHSAA 
appreciates all contributors patience and sup|X)rL

Clay County's Streak 
Ends At 1 19 Wins 

KHSAA Stiff Report 

Thirteenth Region power Clay County had its 1 1 9- 
game win streak halted on Jan. 14, 1993, by the Australian 
Junior National Team, just 1 wins shy of tying the national 
record for consecutive wins at home. 

The Tigers, which set a new state record, had not lost 
at home since December of 1 984. Butthe touring all-starteam 
from "Down Under" snapped the streak by winning 78-75. 
Ironically, this same Australian team was defeated by the 
Tigers in Manchester last season and will also be remembered 
as one of the 1 19 victims. 

Accordingtothe Natranal High School Sports Record 
Book, only two other teams have achieved better marks at 
home. Covington Newton County, Ga., set the record with 
129 consecutive home victories from 1959-67. Hyattsville 
DeMatha, Md., a powerhouse on the East Coast, won 124 
consecutive home games between 1 96 1 -76. 

"This is a tremendous achievement for all the players 
who have played in the Clay County program, and a great 
honor to the fine coaching staff and fens v/ho have been with 
this team over the past decade." said Billy Wise, Commis- 
sioner of the Kentucky High School Athletic Association. 
"There's not a tougher place for an opponent to win than in 
Manchester and it's gratifying that the Tigers' program will be 
honored natk^naJly for its record." 

During the streak. Clay County appeared in the 
Sweet 16 seven tknes, winning the title in 1987.

Sticky Gloves Prohibited In Football 



KANSAS CITY (January 7. 1993) — The use of sticky or 
tacky gloves will be prohibited in high school football, effective with 
the 1 993 season, as the result of action taken Jan. 5-6, 1 993, by the 
National Federation Football Rules Committee. 

Meeting in Newport Beach, Calif., the 5 1 -person committee 
overwhelmingly agreed to prohibit the use of sticky or tacky gloves 
after hearing extensive testimony and viewing various gloves, which 
in some cases will nearly hold the ball by themselves without a grip 
on the ball. 

"Gloves are needed in cold weather and also to protect the 
hand and fingers," said Dick Schindler, assistant director of the 
National Federation and editor of the high school football rules. 
"However, in recent years, they have become more and more 
adhesive. The committee was concerned about the cost of 'keeping 
up with the Joneses,' and also that they would become even more 
sticky in future years. It's one thing to enhance play and quite 
another to givea player the ability to catch a ball he could not without 
using a sticky glove. Gloves may still be worn, but they cannot be 
sticky, adhesive or tacky." 

The committee also addressed recent concerns regarding the 
HIV virus and hepatitis and declared that any player who is bleeding, 
has an open wound or has blood on his uniform shall be considered 
an injured player and shall leave the game and may not return until 
the situation Is corrected. 

"The bleeding athlete will be considered an injured player, and 
he will have to leave the game for at least one down unless the 
haKtime or overtime intermission occurs," Schindler said. "A 
procedure will be outlined to give guidelines for appropriate 
treatment of the player on the sideline." 

In an effort to curtail one-sided games, state associations were 
given the option of adopting a "running time" rule that would take 
effect at a certain point in the game, the time to be determined by 
each state. Whenateam goes ahead byaspecified number of points, 
the clock would continue to run for the remainder of the contest 
except for specified instances. 

In other changes, manufacturer's logo/trade names will be 
limited to a size of I 1/2 inches by I 1/2 inches on a player's pants and 
jersey manufactured afterjanuary I, 1994. Also, vrashing instruction 
labels are prohibited on the outside of a player's pants and jersey 
manufactured after January 1 , 1 994. 

One white towel without markings is the only uniform 
adornment that will be allowed beginning with the 1 993 season. 

Other changes approved by the Football Rules Committee for 
the 1993 season: 

* Penalty-flag colored pads or gloves are illegal equipment. 

* Tear-away jerseys or jerseys that have been altered in any 
manner which producea knot-like protrusion or create a tear- 
away type jersey are illegal. 

* A fair catch is a catch in or beyond the neutral zone. 

* An entering substitute is not considered to be a player for 
encroachment restrictions until he is on his team's side of the 
neutral zone. 

* An offensive player is on his line of scrimmage when he faces 
his opponent's goal line with the Tine of his shoulders approxi- 
mately parallel thereto and with his head or foot breaking the 
plane of an innaginary line drawn parallel to the line of 
scrimmage through the waist of the snapper. 

* A substitute becomes a player when he legally enters the field 
and communicates with a teammate or an official, enters the 



huddle, is positioned in an offensWe formation or participates 
in a play. 

* If the toss or simulated toss is held on the fieU, it shall be done 
at three minutes before the starting time. The game manage- 
ment is responsible for clearing the field of play and end zones 
at the beginning of each half so the periods may start at the 
scheduled time. 

'*' A loose-ball play includes the snap. 

* Any live ball is penalized according to the all-but-one principle, 
except an invalid fair-catch signal shall be measured from the 
succeeding spot. 

Points of emphasis for the 1 993 season established by the 
committee are protecting the snapper, roughness during onside 
kicks, and legal proteaion of hand/wrist injuries. 

More boys participate in football than any other sport at the 
high school level. According to the 1991-92 sports participation 
survey of the National Federation, 9 1 2,845 boys participated in the 
sport in 1 3,826 high schools.

National "Through With Chew" Week Set 



Kentucky ranks sixth nationally in 
teenagers use of chewing tobacco; 
West Virginia leads the country 



The fifth annual Through 
With Chew Week will be Feb. 22- 
28. February 22 is the anniversary of 
the death of Sean Marsee, an Ada, 
Oklahoma, high school athlete who 
died in 1 984. Sean lifted weights and 
ran the 400-meter relay. By the time 
he was 1 8 years of age, he had won 28 
medals. 

Sean did not smoke or drink, 
but he did use smokeless tobacco 
because he thought it wasn't harmful 
to his health. When oral cancer was 
discovered, part of Sean's tongue was 
removed. But the cancer spread. 
More surgeries followed, including 
removal of his jaw bone. In his last 
hours, Sean wrote - he could no 
longer speak - a plea to his peers, 
"Don't dip snuff." He died at age 19. 

NationalThrough 
With Chew Week set for 
Feb,22'28, 1993. 

Currently, there are 1 2 
million smokeless tobacco users in the 
United States, three million of whom 
are under the age of 2 1 . The average 
age of first use is only 1 0-years-old 
and regubr use begins at 12 years of 
age. 

According to the American 
Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and 
Neck Surgery (a surgical specialty that 
treats the ears, nose, throat, including 
tumors of the head and neck), studies 
show smokeless tobacco is more 
addictive than cigarettes and may be 
harder to quit. 

"When the tobacco is 
chewed or dipped, nicotine and other 
chemicals are absorbed directly 
through the stomach and mouth into 
the bloodstream," said Lee Eisenberg, 
.D., National Through With Chew 
chairman. "It is through this process 



that the user gets a nicotine high but 
also develops mouth cancer." 

Kentucky is sixth nationally in 
use of smokeless tobacco by 1 6-year- 
olds, according to a survey conducted 
by the Center for Disease Control. 
The Bluegrass State trails only West 
Virginia, Mississippi, Wyoming, 
Arkansas and Montana. (See accompa- 
nying chart)

Otolaryngologf-Head and Nedc Surgery 
has released new brochure written for

item included a brief re- 
view of the Rules of Golf. 
It was decided that coach- 
ing should still be prohib- 
ited during tournament 
play.

on the awards allowed for school and 
non-school competition. 

The next item for discussion was 
the Regional Golf Tournament sites and 
managers. The Regional Tournaments 
are set for the week of October 4, 1993. 
It was suggested that if possible, the 
Girls' Regional Tournaments be con- 
ducted Monday or Tuesday of that week. 
Some of the regional sites were set with 
golf committee members helping to se- 
cure those sites that are not assigned. 
The regional information and entry forms 
were reviewed and changes were made 
for the 1 993 golf season. 

The prop>osed re-alignment of 
regions v^as the next item for consider- 
ation. After a lengthy discussion and 
review of all of the proposals submitted, 
the committee recommended the fol- 
lowing: 

Girls: A nine-regbn alignment 
with no change in state qualifying. 



Boys; A similar I l-regbn 
alignment with Bracken Ccxinty being 
moved from Regbn 4 to Region 9. 
There is also a recommendatbn to 
increase the individual state qualifiers 
from three to four qualifiers. 

These proposals will be submitted 
to the Board of Control for their con- 
sideration and approval. 

Miscellaneous items included a 
suggestion that all of the regional manag- 
ersforthe 1993 tournaments supply the 
KHSAA with a list of schools who par- 
ticipated in these tournaments. This list- 
ing will provide the most accurate ac- 
counting of participating schools by re- 
gbn. A Golf Participation Committee 
v/as formed to look at this information. 
The committee includes Bill Frost, Ernie

TrackAnd Field Prepares Two-Day Affair 



MINUTES 



The Kentucky High School 
Athletic Association Track and Field 
Committee met at the Association Of- 
fice in Lexington on Wednesday, Jan. 20, 
1 993. The meeting was called to order 
by Brigid L DeVries, Assistant Commis- 
sioner, at 1 :30 p.m. 

Members present were: Bro. 
Borgia, Charlie Ruter, Alice Leigh, Augie 
Schiller, John Gettler, Gordon Bocock, 
Dave Shufelt, Barry Binkley, Bill Patton, 
Bob Stacey, Jeff Saybr, Duane Stewart, 
Jack Keller, Frank Miklavcic and Jean 
Wright. Alvisjohnson also was present. 
Members absent were Rick Coffey, Tony 
Rowe, Tim Estes and Gordon Bocock. 

Ruter and Miklavcic reported 
on the Mason Dixon Games scheduled 
on Jan. 29 & 30, 1993. As in the past, the 
high school division will be open to 
Kentucky athletes only. It is estimated 
that there will be around 2,000 high 
school athletes participating in this event 

Jean Wright gave a report on 
the 1 993 Blue Grass State games. The 
participation was good, and one of the 
goals for 1 993 will be to get track entries 
from Kentucky counties where there 
were no representation. The dates for 
the 1993 games are July 24-25, 1993. 

Barry Binkley reported briefly 
regarding the KTCCCA Annual Clinic. 
There won't be a clinic this year, but 
plans are to try to get a fixed date for the 
clinic, starting next year. 

The next item on the Agenda 
was a discussion of the Regbnal Track 
Meets and sites. Committee members 
discussed and made recommendations 
regarding regional sites from the schools 
who had requested the meets for the 
1 993 season. Ms. DeVries will begin to 
solicit the other sites not assigned for 
the 1993 Regbnal Meets. The dates for 
the 1 993 meets are as folbws: 

R^ional Meets: May 2 1-22, 1 993 
State Meet May 28-29. 1993 

The next item on the agenda 



was a discussion of the new two-day 
State Meet format. Two proposals were 
discussed at length, one from Keller and 
one from Bocock. After a lengthy dis- 
cussion the committee approved 
Bocock's prof>osal with some minor 
revisions. Two runners in each event 
will qualify from the regional meet into 
the state meet. At the state meet, the 
top four runners in each heat on Friday 
will qualify for the finals on Saturday, 
except for the longdistance races, where 
they run only once as a final heat. Those 
events are the 3200-meter relay, 1 600- 
meter run and the 3200-meter run which 
will use a waterfall start The 800-meter 
run and 3200-meter relay will use the 
v/aterfall start with a two-turn stagger 
and break line with two runners per 
lane. The fastest rijnners will be in the 
inside lanes with the slower runners 
toward the outside lanes ~ ( I -8) (9- 1 6). 

Committee members ana- 
lyzed the 1992 state meet and made 
some suggestions for the 1 993 meet Bill 
Patton outlined some specific sugges- 
tbns for the 1993 meet which were 
noted and will be in effect this year. 

Ms. DeVries gave a facility 
update on the University of Kentucky 
track. The field events runways and 
throwing surfaces are due to be resur- 
faced this coming March. Facilities Co- 
ordinator Russ Pear advised that the 
work should be completed in time for 
the State Meet However, the KHSAA 
should have a backup site just in case the 
work is not finished. Committee mem- 
bers suggested the following alterna- 
tives; Murray State University for all 
three classes, or individual high school 
facilities splitting up each of the classes 
with separate meets. Members sug- 
gested several schcmls as possible choices. 
These sites include Henderson County, 
Shelby County, Ft Knox, and Ryle. 

The next item v/as a discus- 
sbn of recruitment of officials. Com- 
mittee members are going to work hard 
to get more people involved in officiat- 
ing. Regbnal meets have to have at least 
one KHSAA registered official working

Ms. DeVries reviewed the 
1 993 National Federation rules changes. 
The discus cage is mandatory this year 
so schools who do not have a cage 
cannot conduct the discusat their school. 
The rule change regarding scoring was 
discussed. It was decided that no change 
in scoring at the Regional and State Meet 
would be made at this time. 

Miscellaneous items included 
a proposal from Miklavcic regarding an 
"All-Class State Final" in Track and Cross 
Country. In Track, the proposal sug- 
gested bringing the top-two participants 
from each class, plus the next two best 
times, or the top three from each class 
plus the next 1 best times in for a two- 
day meet This meet would follow the 
regular 3 class state meet Miklavcic 
submitted the proposal to Commis- 
sbner Billy Wise for consideration. 

There being no further busi- 
ness, the meeting v/as adjourned.

cheerleading squads and/or coaches are 
asked to stop by the Kentucky Association 
of Pep Organization Sponsors table to: 

1. Register your squad. 

2. Pick up important informa- 
tion and materials for your squad. 

Atong witii a KAPOS Board 
member, there will be high school cheer- 
leaders to assist you. They can be iden- 
tified by their hostess armbands. Feel 
free to ask them for help, and in turn, 
they may seek you and your cheerlead- 
ers to be interviewed by one of the radio 
commentators. In order to make their 
task easier, we are asking that you reg- 
ister your seat, row and section number. 
A possible radio interview is often missed 
because the guides could not locate the 
desired person in time for the interview. 

Hospitality Room: May we re- 
mind all cheerleaders and coaches that 
you are cordially invited to have refresh- 
ments, socialize with friends, exchange 
ideas and perhaps get help with your 
problems at our hospitality room. 

Attention Principals: If yourteam 
will be participating in the Sweet 16, 
included in the packet sent to you by the 
KHSAA will be a letter pertaining to 
your cheerleading squad. Be sure to 
look for this and relay all informatran to 
your cheerleading coach. We request 
your cheerleaders be chaperoned by a 
well-qualified, school-approved adult. 
Verification of this, along with your cheer- 
leading coach's name, must be reported 
in the letter of confirmation which you 
will receive. This letter must be in the 
hands of the KAPOS officer prior to the 
time your cheerleaders take the fk)or. 

Important: Please be sure 
your school is a paid member of KAPOS 
or pays the fee before their first game in 
order for your squad to compete for the 
cheerleading awards in the State Tour-

outstanding cheerleading squads with 
recognitbn they so well deserve. All 
cheerleader awards will be presented 
between games on Friday night of the 
State Tournament. The av/ards are as 
folbws: 

The winning cheerleading squad 
in the Boys' Sweet 16 will receive the 
Ted Sanford Trophy; the Girls' Sweet 1 6 
winner will receive the Tom Mills Award. 
The runner-up cheerleading squads will 
receive a trophy, with third- and fourth- 
place squads receiving plaques. In addi- 
tkin, the Special K-Pep Award will be 
presented. All tournament cheerleading 
squads and their coaches are asked to be 
located cbse to the playingfloor so they 
can easily come on the floor should they 
win an award. 

Sportsmanship Month 

While every month should be 
Good Sportsmanship Month, KAPOS 
has always tried to put special emphasis 
on being a good sport at tournament 
time. Being a good sport is part of being 
a good citizen. We don't believe good 
citizens need to be reminded to exem- 
plify good sportsmanship. However, it is 
especially fitting at tournament tiine to 



remind all citizens that it is a privilege to 
be able to attend the tournament and 
that each individual can contribute to 
the success of the tournament if he will 
abide by the KAF*OS Sportsmanship 
Creed proclaimed by Governor 
Brereton Jones. The Governor's proc- 
lamation is on display at the KAPOS 
table. Remember, Be A Sport! 

State-At-Large Champions 

Recognition is annually given to 
the cheerleading squads other than those 
1 6 fortunate enough to participate with 
their teams in the State Tournament. 
The winner will receive the Jane Meyer 
Trophy, while the runner-up will receive 
the KAPOS President's Trophy. Plaques 
will be given to the third- and fourth- 
place squads. 

Beginning at the district level, 
all squads that are KAPOS members are 
eligible to be judged for the honor of 
representing their district in the KAPOS 
Region-At-Large cheerleading competi- 
tion. The winner and runner-up of each

Notes To Administrators 

Many of you have responded 
to our SOS in releasing teaching person- 
nel to assist with the many tasks neces- 
sary to keep this organization function- 
ing effectively. 

Again, we need judges and per- 
sonnel help at the tournament This 
involves at least 1 2 to I S people. It is also 
back-breaking, tiresome work. How- 
ever, we have many dedicated persons 
who have indicated a willingness to help 
share these duties provided they get a 
release from their administrators. There- 
fore, the KAPOS Board is seeking your 
understanding and cooperation should 
you be asked to release a teacher from 
his or her duties to help carry on the 
work KAPOS is doing to make 
cheerleading a worthwhile educatbnal 
experience in the state of Kentucky. 

Stella S. Glib Scholarship 

KAPOS is happy to annually 
award the Stella S. Gilb Scholarship to

Ervtora5dtytlieK«ntijd<yM«<lcalAs60ClaOon.Comrrtttee on School HcaltKFfvslcal Education and Medical Aspects of Sport© 



PURPOSE 

The Kentucky High School Athletic Association has adopted this 
policy in an efifart to minimize the possibiUty of transmission of any 
infectious disease during a high school athletic team practice or 
contest. 

In the last few months, considerable attention has been given to 
the HIV infection as it relates to sports. While experts say the 
possibihty ofHTV transmission occurring during athletic con[q)etition 
is close to non-existent, appropriate precautions must be taken to 
prevent the spread of HIV and other infectious diseases. 

The National Federation Rules Review Committee and TAR- 
GET® have had a number of meetings the past few weeks regarding 
rules coverage as it relates to HIV and the Hepatitis B virus. 

Each rules committee will be asked to consider adopting a 
committee statement of communicable disease precautions and also 
to adopt statements within the rules and procedures to follow for a 
participant, coach or official who is bleeding, has an open wound, or 
has blood on the uniform. For the 1 993-94 year, each sport will have 
specific coverage for these provisions printed in the Rule books. 

In the interim, certain amendments to the rules have been 
suggested to be utilized for the remainder of the 1 992-93 school year. 
The K.H.Sj^j\. is implementing these standards eflfective immedi- 
ately in response to numerous requests that have been received bom 
schools and officials to provide more specific guidance in regard to 
precautions against communicable diseases. School administrators, 
coaches and officials should review and follow these procedures. 
Your immediate attention and full cooperation is appreciated. 

The policy primarily addresses blood-borne pathogens such as 
the Hepatitis B virus and the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HTV). 
However, it also covers common- sense precautions against the spread 
of less serious contagions such as the Influenza virus and the Common 
Cold virus. 

Special thanks to the West Virginia Secondary Schools Activi- 
ties Commission, the Illinois High School Association, the Missouri 
State High School Activities Association and the National Federation 
for their assistance in this matter. 

BLOOD-BORNE PATHOGENS 

Blood-borne pathogens such as Hepatitis B and HIV are serious 
infectious diseases which are present in blood as well as other bodily 
fluids such as semen, vaginal secretions and breast mUk. While there 
are a number of other such blood-bome di seases. Hepatitis B and HFV 
are the most commonly known. 

Hepatitis B is a virus which results in a dangerous inflammation 
of the hver. It's victims can suffer long-term consequences and 
reoccurrences, and the disease can be deadly if not treated. HIV is the 
virus that causes Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS), 
which weakens the immune system, thus making a person susceptible 
to infections their immune systems would normally fight off. At this 
time AIDS is incurable and deadly. 

The precise risk of HIV transmission during exposure of open 
wounds or mucous membranes such as the eyes, ears, nose and mouth 
to contaminated blood is not known. Though the possibility of 
contracting HIV in this manner is generally considered to be less than 
the possibility of contracting Hepatitis B and other blood-bome viral 
infections, it is a serious threat. 

Student-athletes, coaches and officials must understand that 
while it is possible for HTV to be transmitted by blood torn one 
individual to another through an open wound, or a mucous membrane, 
the probability is very low. However, since the chance of this 
occurring does exist, the appropriate precautions should be taken to 
ensure no transmission can occur and to be aware of the possible 
consequences. 



PRECAUTIONS AGAINST TRANSMISSION OF BLOOD- 
BORNE PATHOGENS 

The proper handling of body fluid spills should be a concern of 
teachers, coaches, officials euid student-athletes. All concerned indi- 
viduals must be aware that any time there is blood and/or other body 
fluids present, there is the possibility of an infectious disease being 
transmitted. However, this possibility can be reduced if a few 
conunon sense precautions are observed. 

Communicable Disease Precautions 
While the risk of one athlete infecting another with HIV/AIDS 
during competition is close to non-existent, there is a risk that other 
blood borne infectious diseases can be transmitted. For example. 
Hepatitis B can be present in blood as well as in other body fluids. 
Precautions for reducing the potential fcff transmission of these 
infectious agents should include, but are not limited to, the following: 

1 . Routine use of gloves or other precautions to prevent skin and 
mucous membrane exposure when contact with blood or other 
body fluids is anticipated. 

2. Immediately wash hands and other skin surfjices if contaminated 
(in contact) with blood or other body fluids. Wash hands 
immediately after removing gloves. 

3. The bloodied portion oftheuniformmustbeproperlydisinfected 
or the uniform changed before the athlete may participate. To 
disinfect the uniform, use a solution of 1-100 (for example, 1/4 
cup to one gallon water) of sodium hypochlorite (example 
bleach) or 70% isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) or other 
appropriate disinfectant. 

4. Clean all blood contaminated surfaces and equipment with a 
solution made from al-lOdilutionof household bleach or other 
disinfectant before competition resumes. 

5. Practice proper disposal procedures to prevent injuries caused 
by needles, scalpels and other sharp instruments or devices. 

6. Although saliva has not been directly implicated in HIV trans- 
mission, minimize the need for emergency direct mouth-to- 
mouth resuscitatioa Mouthpieces, resuscitation bags, or other 
ventilation devices should be available for use if possible. 

7 . Athletic trainers/coaches with bleeding or oozing skin condition 
should refi"ain fiiom all direct athletic care imtil the condition 
resolves. 

8. Contaminated towels should not be re-used. 

9. Follow acceptable guidelines in the immediate control ofbleed- 
ing when handling bloody dressings, mouthparts and other 
articles containing body fluids. 

10. Refer to the specific sport rules for additional information. 

General Procedures for Activities: 

1 . If excessive blood appears on the imiform, the player should 
replace that part of the uniform without punitive action. 

2 . All athletes must cover any open wound. 

3. Student athletes should treat and cover their own wounds 
whenever possible. 

4 . When administering first aid, disposable rubber gloves should 
be worn. 

A different pair of gloves should be worn for each treatment 
administered. 

5. If an individual, be they a player, coach or official, has someone 
else' s blood on his/her skin, the area should be washed with soap 
and water and wiped with disinfectant, such as isopropyl 
alcohol. 

6 . If a student athlete begins to bleed during an activity, play must 
be stopped, the student athlete is to be considered injured,

removed from play, and any potentially contaminated surfaces 
cleaned using a disinfectant The sxnface should then be wiped 
with clean water. 

7. Any student athlete that is removed must have the wound 
covered and the bleeding stopped prior to returning to the 
contest. 

8. Any individual who has treated a wound or cleaned a contami-

Kentuckians Named 
To National Hall 

Two Kentuckians were among 1 3 people selected to 
the National High School Sports Hall of Fame in 1993. It's the 
I Ith class to be inducted into the Hall in Kansas City, Mo. The 
late William Kean of Central High School and Geri Grigsby of 
McDowell High School were the two from the Bluegrass State 
selected. 

Kean was a pioneer on and off the court during his years 
(1923-58) as football and basketball coach at the inner-city 
school in Louisville. He was the most successful basketball coach 
in Kentucky history, winning 91.1 percent (856 wins, 83 losses) 
of his games during a 35-year career, which came to an untimely 
end with his death in 1958. Kean's basketball teams won five 
Kentucky state titles in the Kentucky High School League and 
four national titles in the National Negro High School Tourna- 
ment. Black teams were not allowed to join the Kentucky High 
School Athletic Association until shortly before Kean's death. 
And Kean played a large role in that effort. 

Kean was at the forefront of the integration effort in 
athletics, urging his black coaching colleagues to play the tradi- 
tionally white schools and vice-versa. Definitely a pioneer in this 
area, Kean often went public with his desire for "mixing" of the 
schools. In football, Kean was almost as successful with a 33-year 
record of 225 wins, 45 losses and 1 2 ties, a winning percentage 
of 8 1 .9. Kean also coached track, tennis and baseball at Central 
and served for a period of time as the schools' director of 
athletics. In 1952, Kean was named coach of the year by the 
Kentucky High School League, and, in 1 975, he was inducted into 
the Kentucky Athletic Hall of Fame. During his days as an athlete 
atHoward University, Kean was the firstfour-sportletterwinner 
(baseball, football, basketball, track in the school's history. 

The captains of the last two football teams that Kean 
coached before his death were Leonard Lyies and Stanley Hinds, 
who went on to stellar professional careers with the Baltimore 
Coks and Philadelphia Eagles, respectively. 

In the 35 years since his death, Kean has been remem- 
bered for more than his 1 ,08 1 football and basketball victories. 
Quoting from newspaper writer Frank Stanley, "His mandate 
was higher than winning games. It v/as building character. He 
wanted every athlete to be a gentleman and a scholar as well as 
a great performer. He seemed touched with a quality which 
went beyond the best score. He looked upon athletics as

Proposals For 1993 Delegate Assembly 



The business meeting of the 
Delegate Assembly of the Kentucky High 
School Athletic Associatbn will be held 
on Friday, April 1 6, 1 993, at I I a.m. at 
the KHSAA Office Building, 2280 Ex- 
ecutive Drive, Lexington, Ky. 

As provided in Article IX, Sec- 
tion I , of the KHSAA Constitution, the 
folbwing profKDsals for changes in the 
rules of the Association, to be acted 
upon at the Annual Meeting, are hereby 
submitted to all members of the KHSAA 
for their information. No proposals 
other than these may be considered at 
the Annual Meeting, except by a two- 
thirds vote of the delegates. 
PROPOSAL I 
Principal Kenneth Frick, Butler 
High, submits the folbwing proposal: 

Constitutbn, Article IV - Sec- 
tion 2, change to read: 

b. Board of Control - Mem- 
bers of the Board of Control shall be 
elected for a period of fouryears by vote 
of the representatives of member schools 
in each sectbn (Basketball Regbns I & 
2, 3 & 4, 5 & 6, 7& 8, 9 & 10, II & 12, 13 
& 14, 15 & 1 6] and shall be a high school 
administrator. High school administra- 
tor is defined as a principal, assistant 
principal, and/or athletic director. In 
addition, two blacks and two females 
shall be elected to serve as minority 
representatives, but they do not have to 
be a high school administrator. 

PURPOSE: To ensure that eight 
members of the Board of Control of the 
KHSAA are high school administrators 
who are directly involved and are ulti- 
mately responsible for the implementa- 
tbn and enforcement of the rules and 
regulations of the association. This 
change would not effect the eligibility of 
persons wanting to serve as minority 
and female representatives on the Board 
of Control. 

PROPOSAL II 

Principal Kay Lancaster, Chris- 
tian County High Schcxil, submits the 
folbwing proposal: 

Constitution, Article IX, Amend- 
ments, SECTION I. Deadline for Filing 

On or before February I of each 
year, a member school may file with the 
Commissioner any proposed change in 
the Associatbn Constitutbn and/or By- 
Laws. The Commissioner shall submit 
these proposed changes to the member 
schools by March I of each year. Also, 



any proposals to be offered by the Board 
of Control shall be submitted to the 
member schools by March I of each 
year. Except by two-thirds vote of the 
delegates, no proposak other than these 
may be considered at the annual meeting. 
PURPOSE: This proposal will give 
the member schools more time each 
year in which to present a new prop>osal. 
But the biggest advantage will be the fact 
all of the proposals will be back in the 
hands of member schools (March I ) so 
the member schools will have time to 
study and discuss the ramification of the 
proposed changes to the Constitutbn 
and/or By-Laws before the vote is taken. 
PROPOSAL III 

Principal Harold Wood, 
Hopkinsville High School, submits the 
following proposal: Constitutbn, Ar- 
ticle III, Membership 

This association shall 
be composed of public secondary schools 
(grades 9-12) v^ich are accredited by 
the Kentucky State Board of Education, 
and non-public secondary schools which 
voluntarily comply with accrediting stan- 
dards of the Kentucky Department of 
Educatbn. There shall be two (2) divi- 
sbns — one (I) public and one (I) 
private All tournament play shall be in 
separate divisbns. Member schools 
shall be required with comply with the 
provisbns of the Kentucky High School 
Athletic Associatbn (KHSAA) Consti- 
tution and By-Laws. No school shall be 
become a member or continue to be a 
member whose detailed financial (ath- 
letic or otherwise), scholastic, and at- 
tendance records are not matters of 
public property or record. Grades K-8 
shall not be eligible for membership. 

PURPOSE: Inequities between 
public and private schools. 
PROPOSAL IV 

Principal Bill Van Winkle, 
Owensboro High School, submits the 
folbwing pro|x>sal: 

By-Law 6, Transfer Rule, Sec- 
tbn 2, Foreign Exchange Students 

(a) Any foreign exchange stu- 
dent shall be ineligible for varsity inter- 
scholastic athletics for 36 school weeks. 
A foreign exchange student may partici- 
pate, however, injunior varsity athletics. 

PURPOSE: Refine transfer rule 
to prevent manipulatbn of rule without 
totally eliminating participatbn by for- 
eign exchange students. 



PROPOSAL V 

Larry Mann, Wrestling Coach, 
Kentucky School f/t Blind, submits the 
folbwing propKJsal for the State Wres- 
tling Committee: 

Amend By-Law 25. Limitatbn 
of Seasons, Part 12. Wrestling. 

(2) Add to end of statement the 
follov^ng - "At each of the two (2) practice 
meets more than two (2) teams may be 
rvolved. No team score may be kept 

PURPOSE: Clarificatbnof rule 
as it relates to teams who may not have 
full complement of p>erformers. 
PROPOSAL VI

folbwing proposal for the State Wres- 
tling Committee:

tered.

Girls effective with the 1994-95 school 
year. 

(3) The first basketball game 
shall not take place prior to the Monday 
following the last State Football Cham- 
pbnship game. 

PURPOSE: Many Principals, 
Athletic Directors, and other interested 
parties have told this office of problems 
related to the overlap of the seasons. 
Since the non-football schools now fol- 
low the same limitatbn of games as the 
football schools, there is no reason for 
a different season. 
PROPOSAL VIII 

Submitted by the K.H.SAA 
Board of Control: 

Amend By-Law 25. Limitation of 
Seasons, F<ut2. Basketball - Boys and Girb 
effective with the 1 994-95 school year. 

( I ) Following the opening day 
of school, there shall be no organized 
basketball practice prbr to October 1 5. 
PURPOSE: Due to the fact that non- 
football schools now follow the same 
game limitation, additbnal practice time 
is not needed.

Ice Breakers Hike Activities Participation 



© 

Target, 



An On TARGET reader re- 
cently sought TARGETS advice in se- 
lecting ice breaker activities for a health 
program v/hich she oversees. 

"I am the facilitator of a group 
of students who have a wide range of 
personalities - some are more confident 
and assertive and are comfortable shar- 
ing thoughts and feelings in small groups 
or class discussions. The more reserved 
students prefer to express their thoughts 
and feelings by writing in personal jour- 
nals or completing worksheets. Cul- 
tural differences also make the sharing 
of thoughts, feelings and values more 
difficultfor some students. Do you have 
ideas for getting diverse groups ac- 
quainted and feeling more at ease with 
one another?" 

TARGETS suggestbns: 

- Get It Together - People 
have countless reasons for sorting and 
grouping themselves as they do. In this 
game, players sort and group them- 
selves and pterhaps learn new things 
about each other in the process. 



Players line up in order accord- 
ing to a direction you give. After the 
direction is given, pbyers must seek 
information from each other so as to 
know how to put themselves in order. 
H ere are examples of the kinds of direc- 
tions you might give: 

Line up according to shoe size, 
from biggest to smallest 

Line up according to birthdays, 
from January to December. 

Line up in alphabetical order 
using your last names. 

Rearrange the group to spell a 
word using the first letter of each last 
name. Line up according to your home 
address numbers from lowest to high- 
est 

Another version is to have ev- 
eryone gather into groups that share 
certain characteristics. Examples of char- 
acteristics you might name: 

• Color of your socks. 

• Number of brothers and sis- 
ters. 

- Favorite ice cream flavor. 

• Favorite television star. 
Nine Pairs Game - On name 

tags, write the names of pairs. Each 
name tag will contain one word, such as 
the name of a person, place, thing, verb, 
adverb, etc. An even number of partici- 
pants are needed. When choosing pairs 
you v/ant on the name tags, be sure to 



not have combinations that overlap, such 
as bread/butter and peanut butter/jelly. 
Arrange the tags so that ,'mates" won't 
be standing next to each other. Place a 
word tag on the back of each person. 

Tell the participants that they 
have a word on their backs and that 
another person in the group has a word 
that when combined will form a pair. 

Participants are to figure out 
the word on their own backs by asking 
questions that can be answered yes or 
no by the other participants. They may 
not give each other clues. They can only 
answer with "yes" or "no." 

Once they know their own 
word, they are to continue playing by 
answering other people's questions un- 
til everyone has figured out the word on 
their backs and who their 'mates" are. 

These are examples of activi- 
ties which provide opp>ortunities for 
everyone to participate while develop- 
ing a sense of community from shared, 
common experiences, leading to inter- 
personal acceptance and support and an 
acceptance of individual differences. 

The National Highway Traffic 
Safety Administration puts the cost for 
a highway crash involving a driver or 
pedestrian impaired by alcohol and/or 
other drugs at $308 annually for every 
man, woman and child in the United 
States.

preparation for the arduous contest of 
life where one must be able to suffer 
defeat and stand victory in an endless 
series of ups and downs." 

Grigsby is the most prolific 
scorer (boy or girl) in the long, storied 
history of high school basketball in 
Kentucky after her stellar career at 
McDowell High School. 

Basketball became a sanc- 
tioned sport before Grigsby's sopho- 
more season, and she proceeded to put 
McDowell, Kentucky, on the map the 
next three years with yearly point to- 



tals of 1,079, 1,421 and 1, 885 for a grant 
total of 4,385, the most in the history of 
five-girl basketball nationwide. 

During her 95-game career, 
Grigsbyaveragedanamazing46.l points 
per contest, with high games of 8 1 and 
66. The 8 1 -point mark is the fifth best 
nationally in history. She holds the 
national record for points scored in a 
season ( 1 ,885), and her junior-year to- 
tal of 1 ,32 1 ranks third, according to 
the National High School Sports Record 
Book. Her senior-year scoring average 
was a phenomenal 49.6 points per game. 

Grigsby was three-time all- 
state performer and was named Miss 



Basketball in Kentucky in her senior 
season after finishing runner-up in the 
balloting as a junior. She also v/as 
named to the first induction class of the 
KHSAAHallofFamein 1988. In 1978, 
she was named Kentucky's Sports- 
woman of the Year. 

In addition to her massive point 
totals, Grigsby managed to average 
about seven rebounds and eight assists 
per game, and she shot about 50% on 
field goals and 75% on free throws. 
Academically, she was perfect with a 
4.0 grade-point average. 

Grigsby continued her bas- 
ketball career at the University of Ken- 
tucky and she's currently an attorney 
with the EEOC in Washington, D.C., 
and resides in Alexandria, Virginia.

Tennessee Coach A Credit To His Profession 



Wrestling coach Steve Henry 
of Soddy-Daisy High School in South- 
eastern Tennessee is being recognized 
nationaliy this month by Coaches Care, 
which pays tribute to outstanding high 
school coaches in America who make 
special contributions to their students, 
school and community. 

Coach Henry was selected to 
receive special distinction by The 
Gatorade Company, creator of 
Coaches Care, for turning his wres- 
tling program into a centerpiece in the 
Soddy-Daisy community and for open- 
ing the sport up to grade school as well 
as high school athletes. 

When students at Soddy-Daisy 
High moved into a new school building in 
1 984, they left behind a tattered gymna- 
sium that was to be permanently shut- 
tered. Within a year. Coach Henry 
convinced the Board of Education to let 
him restore the gym and convert it into 
a wrestling arena that could be shared by 
the entire community. Working with a 
small handful of volunteers, Henry spent 
countless hours over a number of years 
cleaning, painting and fund-raising to 
build a facility that the wrestling team 
could call home. By 1990, a newly- 
formed booster organization for the 
wrestling team called the Take Down 
Club raised an additional $ I 0,000 to 
purchase new wrestling mats to top off 
the rebuilding project 

"Steve elevated the sport of 
wrestling in his community and brought 
kids together by renovating that old 
gym," said Jim Cartwright, Executive 
Director of the Tennessee High School 
Athletic Coaches Association. "He has 
a great relationship with his kids, and 
now has one of the best wrestling pro- 
grams in the state because he v/as dedi- 
cated to making it that way. Coach 
Henry gives his very best to everything 
he's involved in." 

Athletic trainer Doug May of 
The McCallie School in Chattanooga, 
which has one of the state's top wres- 
tling programs, expressed admiratwn for 
what Henry has done for his students. 

"Coach Henry works year- 
round to make that wrestling program 




Soddy-Daisy (Tenn.) High coach Steve Henry 



go," May said. "His kids like him, they 
workfor him and they respect him. He's 
a credit to coaching and his community." 

Henry finds tremendous fulfill- 
ment in v^at he does. 

"I love coaching and working with 
kids," he said. "My mentor in high school 
was my football coach. Through the 
years, the memory of my coach has 
empowered me to be a positive role 
model for young people, not only as 
athletes but as individuals working and 
living in the area." 

Henry's love for coaching isn't 
confined to wrestling, either. Hecoaches 
football, cross country and track at 
Soddy-Daisy. HeisPast-Presidentofthe 
Tennessee Athletic Coaches Associa- 
tbn, a post he held for five years. Other 
noteworthy achievements in his career 
include being named National High 
School Coach of the Year and two-time 
Scrappy Moore Award Winner in 
Tennessee. 

What impresses administrators 
at his school is that Coach Henry is 
more concerned about building charac- 
ter in his students than winning matches. 

"He leads by example," said 
Steve McClure, Assistant Principal and 
Athletic Director at Soddy-Daisy. "He 
achieves every goal he sets. I can't think 
of a better role model for the community." 

One of Henry's goals, how- 
ever, is to be successful on the mats. He 
has an excellent career record of 194 



wins against 69 losses through January, 
and he has coached numerous state 
champion wrestlers over the years. 

"I try to mold athletes into 
survivors," Henry said. "I teach them 
that people who give in are fatalities of 
life; but those who mentally and physi- 
cally discipline themselves are winners." 

"High school coaches are fre- 
quently recognized for their achieve- 
ments on the playing field," said Patti Jo 
Sinopoli, Manager of Sports Communi- 
cations at The Gatorade Company . 
"Coaches like Steve Henry contribute 
much more than that to student ath- 
letes, and we're proud to share his story 
with people arou nd the country through 
Coaches Care." 

High school coaches can be 
nominated for Coaches Care distinc- 
tion by principals, athletic directors, 
teachers, fellow coaches, parents and 
student athletes. Selection criteria and 
a nomination form may be obtained by 
writing: Coaches Care, P.O. Box 1 94, 
Hinsdale, I L 60522-0194. 

Coaches who meet the criteria 
outlined on the nomination form are 
permanently placed on Gatorade's 
Coaches Care Honor Roll and re- 
ceive a certificate from Gatorade as well 
as recognition at state and national 
coaches meetings. The Coaches Care 
Honor Roll is published in Scholastic 
Coach magazine every September.

Baseball Rule Interpretations ^ 



PUBLICATION CORRECTIONS 
CASE BOOK 

Page 6-Revise ruling to read, "Manip- 
ubting the ball to the ground is prohib- 
ited. Albwing the ball to drop to the 
ground is not to be considered an inten- 
tionally dropped ball, as long as it was 
not caught. 

ftge 53, 8.4.1c Pby-ln bst line of ruling 
replace "pitch" widi "interference". 

Page 54, 8.4.2d Play-In last line of 
ruling replace "pitch" with 
"interterence". 

Page 55, 8.42k Pby-ln last line of rulrig 
replace "pitch" widi "rterference". 

SITUATION #1: An overthrow 
goes into an unoccupied designated 
media area. Isthe ball dead? RULING: 
Yes. Anytime the ball enters a desig- 
nated media areci, the ball is dead imme- 
diately. 5- 1 -Ik 

SITUATION 1 2: Bl hits a pop foul 
fly near the designated media area. F3, 
while running underneath the ball to 
make the catch, steps into the desig- 
nated media area. Must he establish 
himself in live ball area with both feet 
before a catch will be allowed? RUL- 
ING: Yes. The designated media area is 
treated as any other dead ball area 
concerning a catch. 5- 1 -Ih 

SITUATION #3: Bl hits aground 
ball to F6. The throw to first base pulls 
F3 off the bag, into the path of the 
runner. There is violent contact as the 
runner and first baseman collide. The 
coach of the defensive team feels the 
contact was malicious, and Bl should be 
ejected from the game. RULING: The 
severity of the contact is not a gauge for 
determining malicious contact, because 
there are times, such as this when con- 
tact is unavoidable. In order for contact 
to be judged malicious, the umpire needs 
to determine that the contact was 
deliberately created by the violator, and 
was excessive and/or an attempt to 
injure. 

SITUATION #4: Rl dives back 
into first base on a pick-off attempt and 
the ground causes an abrasion on his 
wrist. The abrasion is bleeding. The 
umpire calls time, and Rl's coach is 
albwed to clean and bandage the wound. 
The game is debyed duringthis time, and 
Rl is allowed to continue after treat- 
ment RULING: This situation was 
handled correctly, as the delay for ban- 
daging the wound was considered to be 



reasonable by the umpire. If the wound 
could not have been bandaged during a 
reasonable amount of time, Rl would 
have been required to leave the game 
with normal substitution rules applying. 
SITUATION #5: The catcher, 
chasing a foul pop-up, trips over the 
loose bats of the offensive team and falls 
unable to make the catch. RULING: 
The batter may be out if, in the opinion 
of the umpire, the ball might have been 
caught 1-1-5 Penalty 

SITUATION #6: During pby, the 
team in the field throws the ball to home 
pbte. The throw is errant and deflects 
off of a defensive team's helmet left in 
live ball territory. RULING: The um- 
pire may declare a dead ball and award 
any runners an additional base(s) he 
feels they would have reached had the 
ball not hit the helmet as a result of the 
defensive team's loose equipment stop- 
ping pby. 1-1-5 Penalty 

SITUATION #7: At die beginning 
of the first inning, the umpire notices 
that Team A has left its ball bag in live 
territory. Team B has also left a fungo 
bat just beyond first base in live ball 
territory. RULING: The umpire in- 
structs both teams to remove all equip- 
ment from live ball territory and keep it 
in the dugout or out of pby. There is no 
penalty. 1-1-5 Penalty 

SITUATION #8: Bl enters the 
batter's box with a bat that is longer than 
36". RULING: The bat is considered an 
illegal bat since it exceeds the 36" limit 
The batter is decbred cxjt 1-3-5, 7-4a 

SITUATION #9: Bl is adjusting his 
stance in the batter's box. The plate 
umpire gives the "Do Not Pitch" signal. 
The pitcher wheels and throws to first 
base picking Ri off first base. RULING: 
The umpire's signal caused the ball to 
become dead immediately. Therefore, 
no play can take place. Umpires Signals 

SITUATION #1 0: Rl slides at sec- 
ond (a) with his raised leg higher than the 
fielder's knee when the fielder is stand- 
ing, (b) makes contact with the fielder, 
but is not able to reach the base with a 
hand or a foot (c) and makes contact 
with the fielder who is less than a step to 
the side of the, base, or (d) beyond the 
base, but does not make contact with 
the fielder or interfere with play. RUL- 
ING: Rl has committed an illegal slide in 
(a) and (b). In (c) and (d) Rl is not guilty 
of any infraction. 2-32-2 



SITUATION #11: Team A arrives 
at the field with uniforms bearing 
manufacturer's logos larger than I 1/2 
"xl 1/2 ". Is this legal? RULING: Yes. 
The rule does not go into effect until the 
1 994 season. 1-1-5 

SITUATION #12: With the bases 
loaded, one out and R3 on first B5 hits 
a ball in the gap to the fence. R3 
advances safely to third, but does not 
touch second base. B5 makes a wide 
turn around second and is thrown out 
trying to return. Does BS's out at sec- 
ond eliminate the force on R3, thereby 
allowing Rl and R2 to score? RULING: 
An out by a trailing runner does not 
automatically eliminate a force This v^as 
a force pby, because R3 was required to 
go to second by action ot the batter. 
Only if the batter- runner is put out 
before reaching first is the force re- 
moved. Therefore, no runs score, be- 
cause a third out was decbred during a 
pby in which an umpire observed a 
baserunning infraction resulting h a force 
out and this out takes precedence if en- 
forcement of it negates the score 9- 1 - 1 d 
SITUATION #13: Because of an 
injury and with no substitutes available. 
Team A is forced to play with eight 
pbyers. In the last inning (a) several 
junior varsity players, or (b) a couple of 
varsity pbyers who were involved with 
exams arrive at the game The coach of 
Team A realizes he cannot pby with nine 
pbyers again during the game, but wants 
to substitute for some of the remaining 
pbyers. Is this legal? RULING: Yes in 
(a) and (b). Even though these pbyers were 
not at the game when it started, tfiey v«xi Id 
not be prohbited from pbying. 4-4-lf 

SITUATION #14: With Rl on first 
and the defensive team's coach standing 
in his team's bench area nearest first 
base, F2 attempts to pick off Ri. Simul- 
taneous with Rl diving back into the 
base, the defensive team's coach tosses 
a ball down the line to give the appear- 
ance that F2's throw v/as wild. All the 
v/hile, F3 has the ball. Against the 
instructions of the first base coach, Ri 
starts for second, only to be tagged by 
F3. RULING: The defensive team's 
coach is guilty of obstruction and com- 
mitting a flagrant unsportsmanlike act 
At the end of playing actbn, the coach 
shall be ^ected and Rl shall be av/arded 
second base, because of obstruction. 2-

SITUATION #1: With runners on 
base, Fl, who is in the 1 6' circle with the 
ball, takes a step tovs^ard one of the 
runners with a definite attempt to play 
or fake a play on the runner. Is this 
considered an attempted play, v^ich 
would release the runners? RULING: 
Yes. 8-4-2g, Note 

SITUATION #2: Rl is on third base 
when B3 receives a base on balls. Rl 
comes off the base on the pitch. The 
catcher throws the ball directly back to 
the pitcher in the 16' circle. Can Rl 
remain off third base until B3 has reached 
first? RULING: No. Each runner is 
treated separately. Even if B3 has not 
reached first, Rl must commit to third 
base or home when the pitcher has the 
ball in the circle. If she does not move 
one way or the other, the umpire shall 
declare the ball dead and call Rl out. 8-4- 
2g, Note 

SITUATION #3: With Rl on second, 
B2 hits a line drive that strikes Fl directly 
in the face. As Fl falls to her knees, 
placing her hands over her face, the 



umpire, in her judgment, believing the 
injury could be serious, immediately calls 
time as the injured player's coach rushes 
to assist the injured player. Does Rl 
advance or must she remain at second, 
and what happens to B2? RULING: In 
this unique situation v/here safety has 
taken priority, the umpire has to use her 
judgment to determine a fair outcome. 
It, in the umpire's judgment, B2 and Rl 
would have advanced one base, then the 
umpire shall make a one base award. 10- 
2-3g SITUATION #4: With Rl on 
first, B2 receives ball three and begins 
advancing to first base as if ball four had 
been called. Rl advances to second as if 
B2 has received a walk. F2 quickly asks 
the umpire if the pitch was ball four, but 
in the confusion Rl advances to second 
base safely. RULING: The defensive 
team should always be alert to the count 
and attempt plays accordingly. It the 
umpire believes the team at bat pur- 
posely had its batter run to first on ball 
three, the umpire could qect the batter 
for exhibiting behavior not in the spirit 
of fair play. Otherwise, the umpire may 
warn the coach of the team at bat and 
eject the next player to exhibit behavior 
that is not in accordance with the spirit 
of fair play. Rl's advance to second is 
legal. 3-3-lj SITUATION #5: With the 
score tied in the eighth inning, both 
teams leave their benches and go onto 
the field to fight When order is re- 
stored, the umpires determine that three 
pbyers on one team did not leave the 
dugout to participate in the fight, while 
all the players on the other team were 
involved. Since neither team has at least 
eight players remaining, the game can- 
not continue. Is the game otticially over 
or is the game suspended? RULING: 
Any team that cannot finish the game 
with eight players shall forfeit. Since 
neither team could provide eight players 
to finish the game, the game ends in a 
double torfeit with each team being 
assessed a bss. 4-4-2, 4-4-lf 
SITUATION #6: A player needs to 
wear a face mask when she bats. The 
coach provides (a) a NOCSAE helmet 
with attached mask that is commercially 
manufactured that came assembled from 
the manutacturer, (b) a football helmet 
with a lineman's face mask, (c) NOCSAE 
helmet that has been drilled out by the 
school shop instructor and assembled 



with a face mask, or (d) a NOCSAE 
helmet and a tace mask that requires 
assembly. RULING: Legal in (a) and (d). 
Illegal in (b) and (c). In (d) even though 
assembly is required, as bng as the tace 
mask is designed specifically for that 
helmet, there is no violation. 1-1-6 
SITUATION 1 7: Inan ettortto delib- 
erately walk a batter without having to 
throw a pitch (a) Fl intentbnally violates 
the 20-second rule by not delivering a 
pitch, or (b) F2 does not return the ball 
directly to Fl, but instead throws the ball 
to another tielder. RULING: The spirit 
of the rules is being violated in (a) and 
(b). The umpire shall v/am the coach of 
the defensive team and if the act is 
repeated, the violator shall be ^ected. A 
ball will not be awarded the batter. 6-2- 
3, 6-3-2 Penalty 

SITUATION #8: With Ri on second, 
B2 hits a ground ball between F7 and F8. 
Rl touches third and scores, but the 
third base coach believes Rl did not 
touch third and yells at her to return. F6 
receives the relay throw, and instead of 
throwing to F4 to put out B2, who made 
a wide turn at second, F6 throws to FS 
at third in time to tag Rl, who is attempt- 
ing to return. Is Rl out or safe? RUL- 
ING: Rl is rK)t out. Once a runner 
touches the plate, the runner cannot be 
put out, even if the runner attempts to 
return to a preceding base Rl is not 
guilty of interference even though she 
drew a throw by the defense. It, in the 
judgment of the umpire, Rl had deliber- 
ately attempted to return to third base 
to confuse the defense, then the umpire 
shall call interference and declare Rl out. 
9-1-1 

SITUATION #9: With Rl on first and 
the defensive team's coach standing in 
his/her team's bench area nearest first 
base, F2 attempts to pick off Rl after the 
pitch. Simultaneous with Rl diving back 
into the base, the defensive team's coach 
tosses a ball down the line to give the 
appearance that F2'sthrowwaswild. All 
the while, F3 has the ball. Against the 
instructions of the first base coach, Rl 
starts for second, only to be tagged out 
by F3. RULING: The defensive team's 
coach is guilty of obstruction and com- 
mitting a flagrant unsportsmanlike act 
At the end of playing action, the coach shall 
be qected and RJ shall be awarded second 
base because of obstruction. 2-5-3, 3-3 -If

2- 1 -2, Scoring 7 or more teams (8 place 
scoring) should read under Individual 
scoring 10-8-6-5-4-3-2-1 
Situation #1: Prior to the start of a 
dual Cross Country meet, Al 's coach 
asks the referee to permit Al, who is an 
asthmatic, to carry an atomizer during 
competition that contains a prescription 
drug designed to alleviate the asthmatic 
condition. The intent of the athlete is to 
use the atomizer if needed during com- 
petition. Ruling: If Al's condition is veri- 
fied by a physician and the doctor has 
prescribed this medication, it v/ould not 
be an illegal aid as long as a physicians 
statement documenting the need of the 
athlete to use a prescription is pre- 
sented to the meet director/referee 
prior to the beginning of the meet 
Comment: Since the asthmatic athlete 
is at a disadvantage because of his/her 
condition, the rules committee does not 
believe the use of a prescribed atomizer 
v^ould give the asthmatic competitor an 
unfair advantage and has approved the 
use of the atomizers as bng as they are 
prescribed by a physician. A letter or 
note from the doctor must be pre- 
sented to the meet director/ referee 
documenting the possible need of the 
athlete to use the atomizer during 
competition to ensure his/her safety. 
Without the doctors statement, the 
asthmatic athlete may only use the at- 
omizer prior to and after competition. 
Situation #2: In the pole vault, as Al 
goes over the crossbar he touches the 
bar causing it to bounce up. While 
coming dovm Al has the awareness and 
skill to grab the bar with his hand and 
pbce it back on the original pin setting. 
The event judge rules this to be a failed 
jump because Al disbdged the bar. Al's 
coach appeals the decision of the event 
judge citing that the bar v/as not dis- 
lodged from the original pin setting. 
Ruling: Appeal denied. Comment: 
Since Al hit the bar causing it to bounce 
up, there is really no v^y of knowing if 
the bar would have become dislodged 
because Al grabbed the bar and placed it 
back on the pins. This is considered to 
be an unfair act as the crossbar should 
not be touched by anyone until it is 
absolutely certain it will not become 



disbdged due to contact by the vaulter. 
(7.4.24B, 7-4-24) 

Situation #3: In a record height at- 
tempt in the p)ole vault, Bi makes contact 
with the bar and it flips up causing it to 
land on the other side, but remains on 
the original pin setting. While the cross- 
bar had been measured prior to the 
attempt, it was decided by the meet 
director and referee that the height 
should be remeasured because of some 
additional sag in the bar since it had 
flip>ped over from the original face tiiat 
had been marked. The coach of BI 
appeals, citing that the rules only require 
a measurement prior to the record 
attempt. Ruling: The appeal is upheld. 
Comment: The rule is quite clear in 
that a measurement is only required 
prior to a record attempt (7-3- 1 4, 7-4- 
22) Situation #4: Due to a shortage of 
meet officials, a number of inspectors 
are called from their stations to help at 
the finish line. During the 1 600 meter 
run, CI commits a foul on a turn where 
there is no inspector. However, the 
referee observes the action of CI. Rul- 
ing: The referee, more than any other 
official, is responsible for seeing that 
there is fairness in application of the 
rules. He has wide discretionary au- 
thority and may disqualify a runner v/ho 
commits an infraction he/she observers, 
but which is not reported to the referee 
because of the absence of an inspector. 
(3-4-5) 

Situation # 5: Can an inspector who 
observes a running infraction disqualify 
the violating runner? Ruling: No. The 
inspector is not given the authority to 
disqualify. Comment: Rule 3- 1 0-3 stipu- 
lates that the inspector be equipp>ed 
with both a red and white flag. When an 
infraction or irregularity is detected 
during a race, the insfiector is required 
to immediately signal by waving a red flag 
overhead. At the conclusbn of the race, 
the inspector shall report what he/she 
saw to the head inspector, who in turn, 
shall re[>ortto the referee. The referee 
shall make the decision after hearing all 
of the evidence. It is imp>ortant that the 
referee be firm and consistent (3-10-3) 
Situation #6: May the clerk of course 
use an electronic communication de- 
vice, such as a radio, to provide the head 
finish judge with information regarding 
adjustments In heat and/or lane assign- 



ments? Ruling: Yes. The referee can 
authorize the use of electronic commu- 
nications in lieu of a written listing of 
changes by the clerk regarding adjust- 
ments in heat or lane assignments. (3-6- 
2) 

Situation #7: Three minutes folbwing 
the running of the 800 meter run during 
the conference track & field meet, the 
coach of Team C appeals to the referee 
indicating that Al, v^o finished tirst, is 
wearing a v/atch and demands that she 
be disqualitied. The referee checks with 
the other meet officials to see if any of 
them observed Al wearing a watch dur- 
ing or immediately after the compmtitbn 
(at the finish line). No official observed 
the wearing of a watch. Ruling: Appeal 
denied. Comment: A participant should 
never be disqualified on the basis of an 
ap|>eal, or alleged observation, by a coach 
or any person not designated as an 
official. If there is any pKsssibility that the 
comfjetitor could have placed the v^tch 
on the arm after the race, there is no 
foul. (4-5-9(e) 

Situation #8: In the boys 4x400 meter 
relay. Team A is running in lane six. 
Approximately five meters from the 
finish line, A 4 strikes the batcxi from his 
hand with his leg. It flies through the air 
in front of him and he catches it about 
three meters before crossing the finish 
line The coach of Team B, which 
finished second behind Team A, appeals 
to the referee citing that Team A did not 
legally cross the finish line and should be 
disqualified. Ruling: Denied. Com- 
ment: The head inspector and referee 
determined that A4 did cross the finish 
line in control of the baton. It v^as also 
determined that no interference had 
occurred nor did Team A gain an advan- 
tage (5-9-6) 

Situation #9: Al, who has completed 
one throw in the finals of the javelin, 
decides to withdraw from the event 
The event judge informs competitor BI, 
who did not originally qualify for the 
finals, that she will now be albwed to 
compete in the finals. The coach of 
Team B appeals the decisbn of the event 
judge. Ruling: Appeal upheld. Com- 
ment: It a qualifying competitor with- 
draws from competitbn in the finals, no 
substitute may replace the withdrawn 
competitor. (6-2-4)

proved earlier this year has been de- 
layed until the 1 994 season. 

The National Federation Foot- 
ball Rules Committee voted to prohibit 
stickyortackyglovesatitsJan.5-6, 1993, 
meeting in Newport Beach, Calif. The 
committee agreed to prohibit these types 
of gloves after hearing extensive testi- 
mony and viev/ing various gloves. 



Developments since the early 
January meeting, however, have caused 
the committee to delay implementation 
of the rule one year. 

"Further information has been 
made available since the committee's 
meeting relative to the impact of the 
decision on manufacturers, dealers and 
schools," said Dick Schindler, assistant 
director of the National Federation and 
editor of the high school football rules. 



"The committee believes it is best to 
delay the decision one year to study the 
available information." 

The sporting Goods Manufac- 
turers Association will be coordinating 
an effort to develop a test standards 
which could be adopted by the rules 
committee and used by glove manufac- 
tures. It is anticipated that a standard 
could be available by June I, 1993.

'The Bench' Is A Great Place To Be 



by Pat Fust 

Recently, I watched Dick Vrtale, 
the mega mouth of basketball, preach 
the game to me over ESPN. I watched 
the players bound up and down the 
court -- bounce pass — swish!, another 
onefor Damon Bailey orjamal Mashbum 
or Clifford Rozier — all well-known 
college players. 

Yeah, those guys are great — 
some of the great names in college 
basketball ~ but watch the TV as it pans 
the Kentucky, Indiana, Louisville or any 
university's bench for that matter. Now, 
on that bench, I don't mean those play- 
ers close to the assistant coach ~ the 
ones with sweat rolling down their faces 
using the front of their uniforms as a 
towel. I don't mean those players who 
are being carefully attended to by the 
team manager, doctor or defensive coach. 

No, I mean those players with 
immaculately clean uniforms, no sweat, 
no injuries — the ones with their w^rm- 
ups still on — still on and still zipped — 
those players with no individual names, 
only identified as a collective noun — the 
bench. You see them all the time. They 
leap to their feet when UK's Travis Ford 
shoots a three. They gather around the 
coach v/hen the ref calls a timeout They 
are the folks sent in when the team is 
winning or bsing with 52 seconds to play 
and you'd think it was the first quarter 
with the way they took command. 

You may not watch those play- 
ers carefully, but I do. Why? Not be- 
cause I'm a basketball junkie or a trivia 
nut It's just because I too have been the 
bench. Not just in basketball, but in 
almost every sfxsrt I have ever attempted 
in my life. 

The bench is just a metaphor. 
An image. A place where kids v/ho will 
never be stars languish year after year. 
Feeling sorry for us yet? Well don't My 
bench years have been some of the best 
of my life. I had everything die team 
starters had and more. I had a uniform, 
although always cleaner than most of my 
teammates. I had the shoes, often whiter 
than my comrades' and I had a place on 




The author, Pat Fust, found that cross country is one sport which 
has no bench -- everybody runs. pi.oio bycrmgtan. 



the team, albeit at the end of the bench... 
it was a place. I was part of a team. It is 
my belief that no student should pass up 
an opportunity to play or participate in 
any sportout of fear of sitting the bench. 

I began my illustrious career on 
the pine boards shordy after the first 
practice we had in the third grade. On 
my v^ray around the gym floor I became 
distracted and ran into the steel molding 
of a door. Twenty-one stitches cured 
the cut and that should have been my 
first clue that I was not made for the 
game., but with the sense knocked out 
of me I continued. 

I saw a bit of playing time in my 
early years as the rules called for all 
players to be in so nnany minutes during 
a game. But when I reached my middle 
school years my reputation folbwed me 
and 1 really settled into the wood. Re- 
gardless, my skills did improve through 
practices, and occasionally, the coach 
would reach down to my sfxjt and 
indicate I was in. 

My finest moment came when 
I subbed in for the star guard. I hustled; 
I stole the ball. There I was on a break- 
away, just me and the basket In sbw 
motion I saw my mom and dad rise from 
their seats. I heard the roar of the 
crowd. I saw myself, the small white 
Michael Jordan of the Catholic School 
League, leap and shoot I saw the ball rim 



the edge of the basket and fall outward Ij 
into the opposing team's hands. I saw my 1 
chances of sitting cbser to coach fade 
with the crowd's silence. 

So why did I stay on the bench? 
Perhaps George Sheehan of Runners' 
World said it best All sports are, he 
believes, centered around creativity, 
competition and community. These three 
facets are v^at should be at the heart of 
the young man or woman seeking to 
participate in a sfxsrt For example, in my 
younger days as that basketball player 
for a very small parochial school, I was 
able to watch my coaches year after year 
design the most creative plays to keep us 
in the game. I v^as part of all games and 
competitions our school held, and I was 
a part of all our wins and bsses whether 
1 ever tossed in a point or made a great 
save. It was worth all the splinters to be 
a part of the team. 

I have often heard the old cli- 
che' that there is no "I" in team. And that 
I truly believe. To be a part of a team, to 
win or lose as a team, teaches lessons 
beyond the playingfloor. So many people 
in our ov^n community and nationwide 
survived their sfx>t on the bench of many 
sports and have gone on to share their 
knov/ledge with others. For example, 
some of our nation's leading coaches 
have sat the bench one time or another.

The Bench (continued) 

Bobby Knight of Indiana, Mike 
Krzyzewski of Duke and even Denny 
Cmm of Louisville can recall a stint on 
the bench during their playing days. At 
one time or another, none of these 
three were starting members of their 
college or high school teams. 

Another bcal player, a bench 
sitter from U of L's days in the early '70s 
v/as Mike Lahan. He has now gone on to 
become a Louisville physician. He said 
his experience of just being a part of U 
of L's championship team was a privilege 
in itself. The discipline and the patience 
he learned as a bench man and the 
frustration that he kept under control 
benefited him when his pbying days 
were over and he began to work hard, 
long hours in medical school. 

Dan Rather, as a skinny sev- 



enth grader, went out for his junbr high 
baseball team whkh had a no-cut policy. 
Therefore, he says he made the team 
but never received any playing time. He 
said he often sat game after game wish- 
ing the star pbyers would be hurt and he 
would be sent In. His wish was never 
fulfilled, but he says now that the expe- 
rience led him to put a greater effort 
into everything he did so that no one 
would ever bench him again. 

For myself, I don't guarantee 
that my years on the bench will lead me 
to coaching, medical school or even 
broadcasting. But I do know that they 
haven't discouraged me from attempt- 
ing anything I think I might enjoy. 

This year, for the first time, I 
ran cross country. Now, there's a sp)ort 
with no bench. We all ran. Some better 
than others but all with the determina- 
tion to win for our team. 



My years of basketball aren't 
even over. I volunteered to n^anage the 
freshman team.- my spot on the bench 
Is so familiar, I knew I was the man for 
the job when the coach asked. 

Take a second look at the fel- 
lows or gals at the end of any bench. 
They'll be around long after the team 
stars fade. I'm often reminded v/hen I 
look at their faces of the bench player 
wfw, v/hen asked by his coach, "Son, 
v^t would you do if the guard called 
pby number three with three seconds 
left to play?" 

My hero responded. "I'd move 
to the end of the bench v/here I could 
see better!" 

Pat Fust is a freshman at St Xavier High 
School in Louisville. He wrote this speech in 
freshman English dass.

Heady Neck Injuries Reduced In Football 



Data is now being tabubted at 
the National Federation on head and 
neck injuries in football. The final num- 
bers for football catastrophic injuries in 
1 993 are not in yet, but so far they look 
like this: 

FX Necks Paralysis 3 

FX Necks Recover 5 

Head Injuries Disability 3 
Head Injuries Recover 2 

There was also one direct head 
injury death and nine indirect deaths. 

Accordingto the National Fed- 
eration, these numbers are bw when 
compared to some of the early data. The 
data has been developed by Frederick 
Mueller, Ph.D. with the assistance of 
Robert Cantu, M.D. 

Reducing Head/Neck Injuries 
In Football 

Head and neck injuries in foot- 
ball have been dramatically reduced since 
the late 1960s. Several suggestions for 
continued reduction are as folbws. 

1. Preseason physical exams 
for all participants. Identify during the 
physical exam those athletes with a his- 
tory of previous head or neck injuries. If 
the physician has any questions about 
the athlete's readiness to participate the 
athlete should not be allowed to play. 

2. A physician should be present 
at all games. If it is not possible for a 
physician to be present at all games and 
practice sessions, emergency measures 
must be provided. The total staff should 
be organized in that each person will 
know what to do in case of a head or 
neck injury in game or practice. Have a 
plan ready and have your staff prepared 
to implement that plan. Prevention of 
further injury is the main objective. 

3. Athletes must be given 
proper conditksning exercises v^ich will 
strengthen their necks so participants 
will be able to hold their heads firmly 
erect v/hen making contact. Strong neck 
muscles may help prevent neck injuries. 

4. Coaches should drill athletes 
in the proper execution of the funda- 
mentals of football skills, particularly 
bbcking and tackling. KEEP THE HEAD 




Head and neck injuries have been drastically reduced thanks to the 
increased awareness of coaches to train their student-athletes on proper 
mechanics for blocking and tackling. Here, Bardstown's William Redd 
looks upfield as a Beechwood defender attempts to make a heads-up 
tackle during the 1 992 Class A title game. Photo byMaikZmf 



OUT OF THE FOOTBALL. 

5. Coaches and officials should 
discourage the players from using their 
heads as battering rams. The rules pro- 
hibit spearing should be enforced in 
practice and in games. The pbyers shou Id 
be taught to respect the helmet as a 
protective device and that the helmet 
should not be used as a weapon. 

6. All coaches, physicians and 
trainers should take special care to see 
that the players' equipment is properly 
fitted, particularly the helmet. 

7. Strict enforcement of the 
rules of the game by coaches and officials 
will help reduce serbus injuries. 

8. When a player has experi- 
enced or shown signs of head trauma 
(bss of consciousness, visual distur- 
bances, headache, inability to walk cor- 
rectly, obvbus disorientatbn, memory 
loss) he should receive immediate medi- 
cal attention and should not be allowed 
to return to practice or game without 
permission from the proper medical 



authorities. 

Avoiding Heat Stress 

Early fall football, cross coun- 
try and soccer are often conducted in 
very hot and humid weather in Ken- 
tucky. Due to the equipment and uni- 
form needed in football, most of the heat 
problems have been associated with 
football. Under such conditions, heat 
cramps, heat syncope, heat exhaustion 
and heat stroke can jeopardize the good 
health of an athlete. 

The National Federatbn rec- 
ommends several preventive measures, 
possibly reminders, which should help 
this late summer and fall... 
Physical exam Proper fitness 

Unlimited v/ater Salt replacement 

Know temperature and humidity (higher 
humidity, harder for body to cool) 

To summarize, the main prob- 
lem in hot weather is water loss through 
sweating. Please, have 2-3 water breaks 
per hour.

Delegates Reject Public-Private Proposal 



Minutes 



1993 Annual Delegate Assembly 

The 76th Annual Meeting of 
the Kentucky High School Athletic As- 
sociation was held on Friday, April 1 6, 
1993 at the KHSAA Office Building, 
2280 Executive Drive, Lexington. The 
invocation was given by Frank Cardwell. 
Ray Story was appwainted to serve as 
Parliamentarian. 

President Jack Portwood called 
the meeting to order at I I a.m. and 
welcomed all representatives. Exec. 
AssL Comm. Louis Stout called the roll 
with 64 elected delegates or alternates 
answering. President Portwood an- 
nounced that a majority vote was es- 
tablished as 43. 

Mr. Portwood then introduced 
newly elected Board of Control mem- 
bers to the Delegate Assembly: Ken 
Cox, Principal, Tates Creek H igh School, 
representing Regions 11-12; and 
Maureen Henson, Coach, Clay County 
High School, representing Regions 9 
thru 16. 

Commissioner Wise asked for 
questions or comments on the 1992-93 
Annual Report. Frankie Francis moved, 
seconded by Richard Goodman, that 
the report be accepted. The motion 
passed unanimously. 

President Portwood an- 
nounced that the next meeting of the 
Delegate Assembly will be held on Fri- 
day, Feb. 25, 1994. The meeting date 
was changed in response to a State 
Dept. of Education request that all 
changes in KHSAA By-Laws be submit- 
ted to them in ample time to be consid- 
ered at their May meeting. 

The next order of business 
v/as the presentation of proposals. 
PROPOSAL I 

Principal Kenneth Frick, But- 
ler High School, submits the following 
proposal: 

Constitution. Article IV - Sec- 
tion 2. change to read: 

b. Board of Control - Mem- 
bers of the Board of Control shall be 
elected for a period of four years by 
vote of the representatives of member 



schools in each section (Basketball Re- 
gions I & 2, 3 & 4. 5 & 6, 7 & 8, 9 & 10, 
II & 12, 13 & 14, IS& 1 6] and shall be 
a high school administrator . High school 
administrator is defined as a principal, 
assistant principal, and/or athletic di- 
rector. In addition, two blacks and two 
females shall be elected to serve as 
minority representatives, but they do 
not have to be a high school administra- 
tor . 

PURPOSE To ensure that eight mem- 
bers of the Board of Control of the 
KHSAA are high school administrators 
who are directly involved and are ulti- 
mately responsible for the implementa- 
tion and enforcement of the rules and 
regulations of the association. This 
change would not effect the eligibility of 
persons v/anting to serve as minority 
and female representatives on the Board 
of Control. 

Kenneth Frick moved, sec- 
onded by Warren Shelton, that Pro- 
posal I be adopted. The motion passed 
by a vote of 47- 1 2. 
PROPOSAL II 

Principal Kay Lancaster, Chris- 
tian County High School, submits the 
following profMDsal: 

Constitution. Article IX. 
Amendments. SECTION I. Deadline 
for Filing 

On or before Feb. I of each 
year, a member school may file with the 
Commissioner any propMDsed change in 
the Association Constitution and/or 
By-Laws. The Commissioner shall sub- 
mit these proposed changes to the 
member schools by March I of each 
year. Also, any proposals to be offered 
by the Board of Control shall be sub- 
mitted to the member schools by March 
I of each year . Except by two-thirds 
vote of the delegates, no proposals 
other than these may be considered at 
the annual meeting. 
PURPOSE: This proposal will give the 
member schools more time each year 
in which to present a new proposal. 
But the biggest advantage will be the 
fact all of the proposals will be back in 
the hands ofmember schools (March I) 
so the member schools will have time 



to study and discuss the ramification of 
the proposed changes to the Constitu- 
tion and/or By-Laws before the vote is 
taken. 

Tasso Harris moved, seconded 
by Stan Steidel, that due to the resched- 
uling of the Annual Meeting in Febru- 
ary, the proposal be amended as fol- 
lows: 

On or before December I of 
each year, a member school may file 
with the Commissioner any proposed 
change in the Association Constitution 
and/or By-Laws. The Commissioner 
shall submit these proposed changes to 
the member schools by January 15 of 
each year . Also, any proposals to be 
offered by the Board of Control shall 
be submitted to the member schools by 
January 1 5 of each year . Except by two- 
thirds vote of the delegates, no prof)os- 
als other than these may be considered 
at the annual meeting. 

The motion to amend Pro- 
posal II passed by a vote of 61-0.

Winkle seconded the motion which

bership

posed of public secondary schools 
(grades 9- 1 2) which are accredited by 
the Kentucky State Board of Education, 
and non-public secondary schools which 
voluntarily comply with accrediting stan- 
dards of the Kentucky Department of 
Education. There shall be two (2) divi- 
sions — one (I) public and one (I) 
private. All tournament play shall be in 
separate divisions. Member schools 
shall be required with comply with the 
provisions of the Kentucky High School 
Athletic Association (KHSAA) Consti- 
tution and By-Laws. No school shall be 
become a member or continue to be a

practice meets more than two (2) teams 
may be involved. No team score may 
be kept. 

PUN>OSE Clarification of rule as it 
relates to teams who may not have full 
complement of performers. 

Frank Miklavcic made a mo- 
tion, seconded by Tasso Harris, to

following the last State Football Cham- 
pionship g ame . 

PURPOSE Many principals, athletics di- 
rectors, and other interested parties 
have told this office of problems related 
to the overlap of the seasons. Since the 
non-football schools now follow the 
same limitation of games as the football 
schools, there is no reason for a differ- 
ent season. 

Frank Miklavcic moved to 
adopt Proposal VII. Bob Jacobs sec- 
onded the motion. 

Brice Thornbury moved, sec- 
onded by John Stevens, to amend Pro- 
posal VI 1 as follows: 

Amend By-Law 25. Limitation 
of Seasons, Part 2. Basketball - Boys and 



Girls effective with the 1 994-95 school 
year. 

(3) The first basketball game 
shall not take place prior to the Monday 
following Thanksgiving . 

The motion to amend failed 
34-24. The motion to adopt Proposal

Girls effective with the 1 994-95 school 
year. 

( I ) Following the opening day 
of school, there shall be no organized 
basketball practice prior to October 
15. 

PURPOSE Due to the fact that non- 
football schools now follow the same 
game limitation, additional practice time 
is not needed. 

Tasso Harris made a motion 
to adopt Proposal VIM. Homer Brown 
seconded the motion which failed by a 
roll call vote of 40-25. 

There being no further busi- 
ness to come before the Delegate As- 
sembly, Richard Goodman moved for 
adjournment Homer Brown seconded, 
motion passed. The meeting v/as ad- 
journed at 12:30 p.m.

Alabama Coach Leads Athletes By Example 



Cross country and trade coach 
Danny Cox of Oneonta High School, 
located about 40 miles north of Birming- 
ham, Ala., is being featured this month in 
several national magazines by Coaches 
Care, the program that recognizes out- 
standing high school coaches in America 
who play an integral role in shaping the 
lives of six million interscholastic ath- 
letes. 

The Gatorade Company, v/hich 
created Coaches Care program in 1 990, 
selected Coach Cox for consistently 
demonstrating, to thousands of students 
duringthepast2l years, that determina- 
tion and faith can help overcome even 
the most challenging obstacles. 

Cox grew up on a farm in Ab- 
bama and loved sports, but his life changed 
at age 1 9 when he lost his hand in a door 
factoryaccidentata summer job. Deter- 
mined to go back to junior college at the 
end of the summer and play football, 
Cox accepted his fate and returned to 
the football field more determined than 
ever to secure a position on the roster. 
He won a starting position. 

"Like a lot of young kids, I was 
dreaming of becoming a professional 
football player at that time in my life, " 
Cox reflected. "After the accident, I 
realized that life couldn't be taken for 
granted. From that day on, I 've strived to 
live each day to its fullest and to be my 
best in every aspect of my life." 

Cox decided to put his disability 
on the back burner and focus on his 
abilities instead. He not only made the 
junior college football team, but achieved 
All-Star Honorable Mention as 
cornerback His diligence paid off again 
when he was av^rded a football schol- 
arship to Livingston University where he 
played football as captain of the special 
teams. 

Although college football came 
naturally to Cox, academics were more 
challenging. But it didn't take bng for 
him to successfully balance his heavy 
class bad and his football schedule to 
receive his bachebr's degree. 

Today, Cox is a father of three 
and successfully balances his family life 




Coach Danny Cox, who is also the transportation supervisor at Oneonta 
School, works under the same roof as his wife Nan (right), a fifth grade 
teacher, and children Jeremy, Carmen and Courtney. 



with a demanding schedule at school. 
He's committed to spending extra hours 
with students to develop their skills and 
confidence, while spending quality time 
with his wife Nan and his children. 

"Coach Cox bves kids," said Bill 
Burdette, school superintendent. "First 
and foremost, he's a friend to his ath- 
letes. He's highly respected and well- 
liked. In the three to four hours he 
spends coaching daily, he helps all ath- 
letes succeed, esf>ecially those from dif- 
ficult environments. He doesn't let them 
give up until he sees results". 

"Coach Cox leads by example," 
added Bobby Erwin, principal and ath- 
letic director at Oneonta City School. 
"He's a constant reminder to his ath- 
letes that success can be achieved under 
any circumstance. He pushes them to 
their absolute best physically and men- 
tally, while treating each one like family 
with dignity and respect" 

Abng with coaching cross coun- 
try and track. Cox coaches the junbr 
varsity football team and maintains a 
busy schedule as a driver educatbn 



teacher and transportation supervisor, 
coordinating bus service for 1,500 kids. 

Cox attributes his accomplish- 
ments and success as a coach to his high 
school football coach who prepared him 
physically and mentally to conquer per- 
sonal battles. 

"My coach believed in me more 
than anyone I'd ever known," Cox re- 
flected. "Even his wife, who was an 
English teacher, spent extra time tutor- 
ing me. They both made me feel impor- 
tant and encouraged me to believe in 
myself." 

Cox v/as fortunate enough to be 
raised by another strong role model, his 
hard-working father and mentor. 

"My father was a very smart 
man," Cox said. "Hetaughtmethe value 
of a strong work ethic and the impor- 
tance of family. That's exactly v/hy I 
chose to be a coach. I v/anted to be a 
pwDsitive role model for student athletes, 
sharing the lessons I learned on and off 
the field and through my personal life 
experiences as a backdrop for teaching 
others."
